Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The movie version of The Rocky Horror Show has turned into such an enduring cult success that it has pretty much obliterated the fact that it all started with a stage show. And now Richard O'Brien's musical is back on stage, where some say it truly belongs (it was nominated for the category Best Revival of a Musical in the 2001 Tony Awards). With a great cast that includes Dick Cavett, Alice Ripley (Janet), Tom Hewitt (Frank 'N' Furter), and Daphne Rubin-Vega (Magenta), the revival fires on all cylinders. Note that while Joan Jett was in the cast as Columbia, she's not on the CD (Kristen Lee Kelly is). But Lea DeLaria, last seen stealing the show in On the Town, more than compensates by playing both Eddie (Meat Loaf in the movie!) and Dr. Scott--and doing great by both. As a bonus, the song "Once in a While" is back after being cut from the movie. Bursting with energy, this recording brings the rock back in Rocky. --Elisabeth Vincentelli

It is next to impossible to hate "The Rocky Horror Show", especially when it is performed by such an amazing and charismatic ensamble cast as this. The 2000 revival of Richard O'Brien's tale of sexual discovery and moral deconstruction was indeed a breath of fresh air in Times Square, however the actual performance isn't represented on this disc. When sitting in Circle in The Square, you'll hear a much more hardcore rock sound, which has been softened on the disc, most notably on Science Fiction Double Feature, which is still perfectly fine seeing as nothing is lost.
Alice Ripley and Jerrod Emick are too enjoyable as the square Brad and Janet. Both have clean and pleasant voices that are vets of a whole slew of musical, which perfectly contrast with the wild and rockin voices of the other players. Though Joan Jett is not on the CD, she still brought a rock'n'roll essence to Columbia that Kristen Lee Kelly doesn't lose on the album. Raúl Esparza is the definition of incredible as Riff-Raff. It's a shame that the recording was released two days after he left the cast (best of luck to him in tick tick... BOOM though). Though Lea DeLaria is often frowned upon, she really kicks as Eddie/Dr. Scott. Both characters are played for the laughs, as they should be. Sebastian LeClause is vocally a great Rocky, but his being shorter than Frank made it a tad awkward, but that affects nothing. Speaking of Frank, has there ever been a greater than Tom Hewitt. He perhaps even bests Tim Curry, if that's possible. His crazy and absolutely perfect voice etch Sweet Transvestite and I'm Going Home, et cetera into your ears — from where they'll never escape. Of course, the real treat is Daphne Rubin-Vega as Magenta. After her hiatus after RENT and her botched CD deal ...

The revival of "The Rocky Horror Show" on Broadway at Circle in the Square in 2000 was treated with some skepticism. After all, the film version is a cult classic and the epitome of the midnight movie. But this is a revival that is fully aware of what the source material is and who would be coming to see it or, in this case, listen to the cast album. After all, those of us who brought our lighters, squirt guns, newspapers, hot dogs, and (at least in my case) a bell, are twice as old and there is nothing wrong with enjoying the madness of our misspent youths. Watching the movie, especially without the company of a theater full of fanatics and all are assorted props, is rather unfulfilling these days. But listening to this 2000 Broadway Revival Cast album of "The Rocky Horror Show" brings back a sense of the fun.

The production in general and the performers for the most part are not interesting in the art of imitation. The aesthetic here is clearly one of camp, perhaps down to excess, but the rules say you cannot do anything to excess in the realm of "Rocky Horror." From the start with "Opening/Science Fiction Double Feature" it is clearly everybody knows what is going on; the audience is encouraged to spell out "R-O-C-K-Y" just like it was another midnight showing. When "Science Fiction Double Feature" turns into a duet you not only think that it makes sense since it is about a "double" feature, but you also realize that the goal here is to make things sound different (if not fresher) than what we recall from the movie.

Richard O'Brien's sexy, gritty, thrilling and provacative revival of the cult classic ROCKY HORROR is fantastically preserved on this CD. While its a little toned down from the live version at Circle in the Square, it's still just as good.
This cast is FANTASTIC with a capital F. Daphnie Rubin-Vega makes a triumphant return to the boards after her post-RENT absence. She should have been nominated for a Tony. Alice Ripley and Jerrod Emick are absolutley delecious as Brad and Janet...a million times better than Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. Kristin Lee Kelly and Raul Esparza are fantastic (I saw Kristin instead of Joan Jett the night I went, and she was perfect) as Columbia and Riff-Raff respectevally. Dick Cavett is perfectly cast as the Narrator, and Lea DeLaria is great as Eddie/Dr. Scott(although, at the end of "Hot Patotie", she was a little sickening to listen too). Hunky Sebastian LeClause has a surprisingly excellent voice as Rocky and "The Sword of Damocles" is perfect. The real star of the CD is the one and only Tom Hewitt. He gives Tim Curry a run for his money as the "sweet transvestite from Transexual-Transylvania". He knows how to play Frank-N-Furter with just the right amount of estrogen/testosterone. Fantastic.
Buy this CD and you will NOT be disapointed, I promise you that. The orchestrations are great and the cast is to die for. Finally, ROCKY HORROR is back on Broadway where it belongs with a stellar cast that comes along every once and a while. LETS DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN!!
