Don’t Dream It – Be It!

Bad, bizarre and bloody brilliant!

Rocky Horror Show - without question the most lurid show in rock theatre history – is a mind-blowing and sensual experience, a divine party, an infernal joke in life’s Garden of Eden. It created its own world from the start, impossible to categorize. The internationally acclaimed production takes the show back to its roots: the fascination and shrill charm of the B-movie, of burlesque and glam rock. With “The Time Warp”, “Sweet Transvestite” and many more songs which are irremovably lodged in our collective cultural consciousness, it has defined an entire era.

Brilliantly bizarre and atmospheric, it was its own phenomenon from the very beginning, far removed from the conventions of the glitzy world of commercial musicals. One year later the off-beat story of Brad and Janet, an innocent couple lost in a mysterious castle and caught up in a mad series of events including rock ‘n’ roll hits, an anarchic sense of humour and some of the funniest lyrics in musical history, was made into an equally legendary film, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Even today, audiences partake in the story of Brad, Janet, and the diabolical Dr Frank ’n’ Furter in an almost ritualistic way.

Unfortunately, the start of Richard O'Brien's "Rocky Horror Show" tour has to be postponed by around two months due to the pandemic. What does this mean for the guest performances in Basel and Zurich:
