‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’: Watch Fox Remake (VIDEO)
Fox’s production of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” aired Thursday night, and Gossip Cop has a collection of several highlights and performances from the show. Watch the TV remake below!
The two-hour special, titled “The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again,” is a reimagining of the 1975 film musical. The story focuses on a straitlaced, newly-engaged couple named Janet (Victoria Justice) and Brad (Ryan McCartan), who seek shelter from a storm at the strange castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Laverne Cox), a sexually ambiguous mad-scientist intent on creating a buff bodybuilder. Thanks to its strange plot and controversial subject matter, the original movie was a flop when it was first released, but it has since gone on to become a beloved cult classic.
The cast of the new TV version also includes Adam Lambert, Christina Milian, Reeve Carney, Annaleigh Ashford, Ivy Levan, Ben Vereen and Tim Curry, who played Frank-N-Furter in the original, as the show’s narrator. Some of the production’s notable songs and musical numbers include “Dammit Janet,” “Science Fiction,” “I’m Going Home,” and “Time Warp,” which the remake has adopted into its title. Watch below highlights and performances from “The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do The Time Warp Again.”
