It’s officially the 19th of June 2013.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROCKY HORROR! 40 years young!
As promised via this post - here are three rare, never before published photos (I know I said I’d post one - but you did such an amazing job of spreading the Rocky and Tim love - I thought I’d add in a couple more!)
These photographs were taken during the original run at The Royal Court Theatre Upstairs. Note the original thigh tattoo didn’t include 4711 - but a pretty flower! Nawgh.
On the 16th of June 1973 The Rocky Horror Show began previews in the Royal Court Theatre Upstairs, London. They held their official, thunder ridden, opening night on the 19th of June 1973.
2013 marks the 40th Anniversary of this incredible production and I want to share some Frankie love here on Tumblr in a tribute to ‘the man who began it’ - Dammit. Well one of them. The one who stormed that stage forty years ago with such style and perfection that we’re sitting here forty years later, still talking about that tiny little production which by rights should have disappeared into the zeitgeist after the originally intended three week run.
So, Tumblr, can we get 4711 notes by 19th June?
If we do it.
I will post a rare - never before seen - photo from the original Theatre Upstairs production.
Well. How nice.
Not only did we get 4711 notes. We got over TWICE that amount. Utterly amazing!
Keep your eyes peeled. The rare photos are on their way.
I see you shiver with….
HE’S NOT AN ASSHOLE! HE’S NOT AN ASSHOLE!!
Tumblr, dat you?
