The Rocky Horror Show is a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through the early 1970s. The musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation – a physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror.
