Dammit Janet! – Interview with Diana Vickers

With cult classic The Rocky Horror Show currently on a huge UK tour, Shannon Rawlins of What’s On London caught up with the amazing Diana Vickers (who plays Janet in the musical) to talk about the film, the fans and the fishnets.

Vickers, who first came to the public’s attention as a semi-finalist on The X Factor in 2008, has quickly made the role her own, described in our earlier review here as “a great casting, with strong vocals and the right amount of naivety for Janet”.

Relieve some tension at The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Richard O’Brien’s cult classic – The Rocky Horror Picture Show – stopped by at New Wimbledon Theatre this week.  And, as Shannon Rawlins reports, it sure arrived with a bang!

Interview with Liam Tamne of The Rocky Horror Show – “It’s great not having to wear many clothes!”

Since its first appearance in June 1973, Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show has become the world’s favourite Rock n’ Roll musical.  It has been performed worldwide in over 30 countries in every continent and has been translated into more than 20 languages.  To celebrate its 40th anniversary, Christopher Luscombe has created a brand new production which is touring the UK until December 2016.

As ever, the show promises to thrill, following squeaky-clean sweethearts Brad and Janet on an adventure they’ll never forget.  What awaits is a night of fun, frolics and frivolity with the scandalous Frank N Furter, rippling Rocky and vivacious Magenta, bursting at the seams with timeless classics such as Sweet Transvestite, Damn it Janet, and of course, the pelvic-thrusting Time Warp.

Shannon Rawlins of What’s On London spoke to Dr. Frank N Furter himself, Liam Tamne, about his character’s charisma, energy and heels …
