Director Kenny Ortega and producer Lou Adler, who oversaw the original film, have also teamed for the companion film, title to be announced. A separate film, "Rocky Horror Saved My Life," is planned for 2016. "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" was adapted from the 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.
Among highlights of the score are “Time Warp” and “Sweet Transvestite (from Transylvania).”
The film was not a hit in its original release, but soon developed into a favorite in midnight screenings at which fans dressed up like the characters and answered the dialogue on the screen.
