I have been too involved with the machinations of the American elections and had no idea the Rocky Horror Picture Show live event was on this evening. Someone just told me about it today. 

So, if you need a break from the election coverage and the wall and the wiki leaks and all the noise associated with the election coverage, you are advised to tune into Fox at 8:00 tonight to watch another phenomenal live show.  I was so impressed with “Grease” and “The Passion”. The creative elements were incredible and the casting impeccable. 

Speaking of casting, the one, the only, Adam Lambert has been cast in the role of Eddie and you know he is going to rock this show like only Adam can.  Expect Fox to continue highlighting  singers from American Idol in a strategic effort to keep this iconic show alive in our head and in our hearts.  After all,  former Idol Chris Daughtry starred in “The Passion” back in March 2016. 

I am also beyond excited to see that Laverne Cox has a major starring role. I love her as the character Sophia in Orange Is The New Black. Love. Her. 

Here is a show synopsis, courtesy of the Rocky Horror’s Wikipedia Page:

“On April 10, 2015, it was announced that Kenny Ortega, best known for directing the film Hocus Pocus, the High School Musical trilogy, and Michael Jackson’s This Is It concert series, would direct the remake.[1] On October 21, 2015, Emmy Award nominee Laverne Cox, best known for her role as prisoner Sophia Burset on Netflix’s prison comedy-drama Orange Is the New Black, joined the cast to play Dr. Frank-N-Furter, the mad-scientist role originated by Tim Curry in the 1970s.[3][5] Lou Adler, who produced the original film, is also co-producing the remake, along with Gail Berman and Kenny Ortega; Ortega will choreograph the film in addition to directing and producing.[5] The creative team is planning “to stick faithfully to the text and the score of the original but greatly re-imagine the story visually”.

What a great Halloween treat. Fun. And, there will be a cast recording available soon on Apple Music.  You can pre-order It or listen to it HERE.
