The Rocky Horror Show

4
Touring show seen in Plymouth
By Robert Iles

Oh, it is good to be back in the theatre with a company giving it their all and an audience on their feet and having a ball!

Rocky Horror always brings a smile to my face and joy to my heart and I have seen it several times over the years - this is one show that you want to stay the same, it is partly its familiarity that brings the pleasure - and the audience interaction. Actually, the audience were a bit restrained on the night we were there but fortunately Philip Frank, the narrator, was more than up to the task of keeping the pace up and keeping us all engaged with his remarks and jokes.

If anyone was wondering, yes, Ore Oduba can sing and he gives us a very enjoyable Brad against Haley Flahery's excellent Janet.

Riff Raff is always a hard part as the actor can't really bring something of himself to the role which audiences want to be "just like Richard O'Brien" ... Kristian Lavercombe did a good job though and Stephen Webb had a fabulous voice for Frank.

Suzie Mcadam's Magenta and, in particular, Lauren Ingram's Columbia were absolutely spot-on and as perfect as you could want, fab.

Joe Allen seemed more at home as Dr Scott than Eddie but gave a good performance in each role while Ben Westhead, while perfectly suited to the role of Rocky, perhaps lacked some vocal edge on the night we saw.

Always a brilliant night out, this is a strong and enjoyable cast - thank you team!
