The soundtrack for the October 21 Fox-TV remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show is released October 22. It is available to order here.
Titled The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again, the recording features Laverne Cox, the ground-breaking transgender actress who earned an Emmy Award nomination for her performance on Orange Is the New Black, as Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
Also in the cast: Tony Award winner Annaleigh Ashford as Columbia, Tony Award winner Ben Vereen as Dr. Scott, pop singer Christina Milian as Magenta, Spider-Man star Reeve Carney as Riff-Raff, American Idol finalist and Glee actor Adam Lambert as Eddie, Victoria Justice (Victorious) as Janet Weiss, Ryan McCartan (Liv & Maddie, Heathers the Musical) as Brad Majors, Staz Nair as Rocky, plus Tony winner and original Rocky Horror star Tim Curry as the Narrator.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows straitlaced sweethearts Janet Weiss and Brad Majors, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist, is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention to showcase the birth of Rocky Horror—a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank's desires.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show was adapted from the 1973 West End musical The Rocky Horror Show, which ran only 45 performances on Broadway in 1975. The film, which came out just a few months later, used several members of the Broadway cast, including Tim Curry, Richard O’Brien (also the composer/lyricist/librettist) and Meat Loaf. Richard O'Brien wrote the stage version and collaborated with Jim Sharman on the film, which was also directed by Sharman.
Among highlights of the score are “Time Warp” and “Sweet Transvestite (from Transylvania).”
