Does Rhydian have a muscley body? (asking that for the show's sake not mine!) If so then I guess he'll pull it off playing Rocky.

Rhydian will be a great Rocky. Went to college with him, he's a big old unit. AND that bleach blonde hair :)

Ahhh now I really want to go, Magenta is one of my favourite characters and Abigail Jaye was the narrator the first time I was in the Joseph chorus when I was 9 :P

I've seen Abigail as the narrator as well, and also as Mrs Lyons in BB - this is a very different role for her!

Watched this last Friday! Oliver Thornton was brilliant as Frank. Everyone else was great too. Actually, everything about the show was brilliant =P It deserves all the awesome reviews that it has been getting.

I know this is touring for a while but anyone know if it has a shot at a west end stint after the tour?

Not that I'm aware, they haven't done a West End stint in the previous recent tours - but then this is the 40th anniversary production and is getting great reviews, so who knows!

We saw it in Wimbledon last Saturday, I'm a "regular Frankie Fan" having seen the show several times, this is definitely one of the better productions and casts. Oliver Thornton makes a great Frank (and makes him sexy again, something I've not seen in a while!). I was a bit shocked when I heard Rhydian was playing Rocky, but was pleasantly surprised as he's great!

I couldn't get a programme or souvenir brochure as they'd sold out on the Saturday night, and many on the Rocky Horror forums are reporting similar problems in other venues.
