The film Industry are constantly remaking classic cult movies. When really if its not broke don't fix it.

Who was in it? I've heard it was an awesome cast, but I looked on internet and didn't find so many things...
I know Tom Hewitt was Frank N. Furter, Raul Esparza was Riff-Raff and Alice Ripley was Janet Weiss.

Have you tried the international broadway database? It has everything. Here's the cast for the revival:

Daphne Rubin-Vega was Magenta. I laughed at that.

Ohh that's true I forgot about IBDB.

That's a great cast. I think I'm gonna invest in the cast recording of that production :wink:

i wouldnt say it's the best. however, most fans of the show feel that the 2 best are the new Broadway recording and then the 1974 Roxy cast album - my personal favourite. the new B'way show was over-done with acting, music, updating it to 2000, and the forced Audience Participation. Tom Hewitt was just awful as were most Franks from the production. nobody of course will ever top Tim Curry.

however, i do enjoy the revamping of the piano score for Science Fiction - Double Feature in that production. and DRV was fabulous, yet a bit over-done, as Magenta/Usherette.

I know I may sound a bit off topic here but recently I went to see an amateur production of "The Producers" which was staged so it looked (almost) exactly like the film version and I was just wondering if any of the recent productions have tried to look exactly like the film (e.g. replacing the usherettes with a video of the lips projected on a screen on the stage like in the opening credits of the film) - it's just that I'm considering going to see the new UK Tour version in Manchester in December and I was thinking that's what they might do, but have other modern productions done that?

to be honest i haven't seen it done the movie way, Its usually the stage way with some extra songs, So i dont think proffesional companies do the film version unless its a tribute (When the film is played in the background and people act it out) Am dram companies do rocky horror the film way or they're own way because they simple can't afford to do the actual show way. I hope that helps.
