Message: Hi everyone! I know this is a little late but I went to see the show (for the first time ever) in Bromley on the fifth and all I can say is wow! How the hell did I ever manage as a virgin? It was fantastic! J.W not only was brilliant as Frank but was incredibly gorgeous too (yes I have developed a new crush)and the rest of the cast were equally good with the possible exception of nast nick who was just... well... nasty nick. I had such a fantastic time I've booked myself tickets for Manchester and Brighton (at great expense) so if anyone wants to say hi to me I'll be the pink Janet (oh and thanks for the dress Saffron it's perfect and won me best costume at Malton- that was such a great night!)Oh yeah and as for Ann Summers not letting you enter that competition to win VIP tickets unless you're 18 what's that all about? I happen to be 16 but an incredibly devoted Rocky fan and I think I have just as much right to win those tickets as anyone who's 18! hmph! (sorry about that little rant I'm just really annoyed about that)Anyway enough of me babbling on... Bysie Bye!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In the front row- and I am! (well in Brighton anyway)

Message: Hi there,
This is my first time visiting this site and saw the stage show for the first time on 21st Oct!
I thought the show was great - Jonathan Wilkes was a bit weak as Frank but it great nontheless.
- Or was it?? I went back to see the show again on the 25th Oct only to find out that Jonathan was ill and Jon Boydon (Brad) was playing Frank instead. And what a show that was!! Jon has much more attitude and oomph and really was a far better Frank - sorry Jonathan, but you'd be better off playing Brad. I can't wait to see some more shows to rave about so I don't keep sounding like a whining moron who knows nothing!! Fiona

Message: am i the only one in the whole world who cries at the end? its just not fair that riff raff killed him before he could change, which is what he was about to do, and the whole part when rocky was crying makes me cry too cuz he didnt know dr franknfurter was evil, he was the only love he had ever known, sad.......... good movie too.

Message: Gotta agree with Saff on this one, was at the first night of the show on the Friday in Bromley and have to say I thought the show was luke warm, rather than hot stuff...
Yeah it was the first time that the cast had performed in front of a real audience, so the performances will no doubt be up and running by the time I see it with everyone again in Edinburgh. (Always a fun venue).I think Jonathon will grow into the part and he certainly had the voice the night we saw it especially during "I'm going home."
But its Kinda weird watching the show turning into a "OhWhataNight/BoogieNights/70'sPartyShow" Rocky Horror always seemed to me more clever than that, it was a witty tight clever rock and roll musical with a quirkey message about tolerance (or Not) for others. Not a happy clappy "forget the story they'll dance in the aisles to anything" 70s show.
I guess the 70's influence in the arrangements and costumes is partly down to the sponsorship of the show by a certain chain of 70's nightclubs.
Not wishing to moan but Nick Bateman proved us all right in our fears, PLEASE give the Narrators part back to real ACTORS... He even mamaged to F@ck up his lines in Super Heroes... "Lost in Space and Lost in Space.." Jeez. :( But my hopes are higher for Rhona Cameron, shes always a riot live.
See everyone on in Edinburgh, Fri/Sat, cant wait to freeze to death in Scotland again ;)
seeing Nathan Taylor in Taboo again.
Declan as Billy and Julian As Leigh Bowery... heh heh heh

Message: Just to say I'm with Saffy on the show thing (hey, we Columbias have to stick together, right?) some of the changes seem to have been made just for the sake of it, and (in the case of Timewarp/sweet T switcharound) in my opinion, show why some things didn't work in the first place..
That said, the cast seem to be really enjoying themselves, which is nice to see, but there was still something .. lacking on my second visit to Bromley that I really hope has found its way back on to the stage by Richmond.
Disco Toucha Toucha? nice idea, sounds great, ruins the moment in the show( But I love the staging of Once in a While now, I think they've finally got it right.) and I think , to be honest it's probably only there to stop people saying ' so whys it sponsored by Flares then?'
(at that point : why IS it sponsored by Flares? Why is it sponsored by anyone? Isn't that what our ridiculous ticket prices are in aid of?*cough*birmingham*cough*ripoff*cough* Talk about selling out. Gah. The show isn't SET in the 70s, duhhh)
I dunno. In some ways its great, the atmosphere is still brilliant, the cast are really friendly and the ingrediants are there for this to be fabby, but there are holes, big, glaring holes, in some respects, which need to be plugged.
But hey ho, still early days right now and hopefully when it returns, the old familiar spark (that elusive ingrediant, eh?) will still be there. :)
*prepares herself to be totally ripped to shreds now*

Message: Hello there people, just thought I would leave a little message seeings I havn't posted in a while.
I thought that the show had such a strong opening for a Saturday, compared to 2000's Croyden performance...that was scary.
As Cath might have said to some people. the cast have yet to gel...but that comes with time, John seems very up on the call backs, I wonder whos been training him? hmmmmmmmmm,
I am desperate fo a ticket for the Friday at Woking if anyone has one going spare.. just the ones left at the box office are a bit rubbish, so any help on that email me.
looking forwards to seeing you again Dave at the show... Mines the Friday at Richmond, as me and Selina are off to see Alice Cooper on the Sat..yaaayyy.
Setting fire to the usherette costume, and lending her mine!

Message: For those of you who remember Nathan Taylor from the last tour just thought you might like to know he's appearing in Taboo at The Venue just off Leicester square. It's an excellent show!

Message: Finally, I've managed to get the right site for the official fan club! I was dragged along to the stage show a while back by a slightly deranged friend dressed as Riff Raff and have been kinda hooked ever since.
There are plans afoot (and even aleg!) for myself and the afore mentioned Riff-Raff-a-like to drag a few folk (initiates and virgins alike) to the stage show in Glasgow at some point so maybe I'll see some of you hardened vets there.
See ya. The Urban Wildman
Eddie. His is the only costume I could pull off with any success (I don't have Frank's legs and I'm too hairy for Riff Raff!)
My fiance dressed as Magenta......... HEY, I can hope, ok!
