New Rocky Horror tour begins in December and as it's virtually on my doorstep again I think I'll have to go.

No David Bedella this time apparently.

Any word on cast? I loved Djalenga Scott as Velma in Chicago recently, and I know she played Magenta on the last tour, I would like to see her in this!

Saw this last night in Wimbledon and thought it was fantastic. Probably one of the best casts I've seen perform the show. Oliver Thornton is an awesome Frank. The new set is very well done (way better than those stupid ladders from the last tour!). And the audience was brilliant too. Was great to see Richard O'Brien and find out that he can still sing the time warp too! If you get a chance to see the show, then go. Was the perfect evening for Blue Monday!

Wasnt it a good sized crowd for a monday especially with terrible transport issues going on.

Agree on the set and cast, what fabulous voices, it felt like a good quality tour, not cheap at all.

Richard O'Brien was there?! Was that because it was opening night?

We're going to see it in Wimbledon on Saturday, and can't wait... although I doubt a surgical gown will keep me warm in this weather!!

Saw this in Bristol on Saturday and it was amazing. One of the best casts i've seen. Oliver Thornton plays an amazing Frank and Roxanne Pallet really surprised me as well.

Saw it last night. Roxanne Pallett was excellent, so was Ben Forster as Brad. Strong cast all around. Fab band too.

Going to see this 8/2/13 in Aylesbury. My 2nd time seeing it.

However, on 8/2/13, all tickets are either £10 or £20. Does anyone know if there is a reason for this? such as it all being understudies for whatever reason? Just I'm a big Oliver Thornton and Rhydian fan, so I'd like to see them :P
