The Rocky Horror Picture Show has crept its way into Milton Keynes
Theatre. A spectacularly camp show filled with gloriously raunchy
outfits and a whole host of brilliant songs.
The Rocky Horror
Picture Show tells the story of a young innocent and newly engaged
couple who unfortunately happen to get a flat tyre. After walking for
2 miles, they come across a spooky looking old house. As scary as it
may look, it’s their only hope of getting some help.
Upon being welcomed inside, things get even creepier than they first appear. They’re greeted by a collection of unusual characters to say the least. The main character they meet is Frank n Furter, a mad transvestite scientist, who reveals his latest creation to them – a muscle man called Rocky Horror. Frank n Furter is played brilliantly by Stephen Webb, he steals the show for sure.
The show certainly
doesn’t disappoint when it comes to creating a fantastic atmosphere,
where the audience really merges with the show. Audience members are
on their feet singing and dancing – especially to the Time Warp of
course! Many are dressed up and looking very sassy in suspenders,
corsets and feather boas – and that’s not just the women.
Be aware that you may
notice some audience members shouting out key lines back to the
actors – but this is all an expected part of this legendary show.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Milton Keynes Theatre is narrated by none other than Dom Joly, who did a great job and interacted with the audience really well.
During the show there was the occasional moment where I thought some parts were a little dragged out and longer than needed, which brought down the energy flow of the show, but this was only momentary.
Overall, the show was absolutely fantastic. It was exciting, humorous and powerful. The atmosphere in the theatre was electric.
The Rocky Horror Show is at Milton Keynes Theatre until Saturday 9th February 2019.
