A story of creation, love, hate, adventure (and sex), The Rocky Horror Show begins in Denton, Ohio, with the engagement of Brad Majors and Janet Weiss. As they travel through a rainstorm to see "the man who began it," they stumble upon the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Upon taking refuge inside, the doctor's odd servants (Magenta and Riff-Raff) usher them into the lab for a party celebrating the unveiling of Frank's newest creation: the perfect man, Rocky. Over the course of the night, Frank seduces the unsuspecting couple, Janet gets in touch with a new side of herself, and with the arrival of Dr. Everett Scott, the guests discover that Frank is actually from another place entirely - the planet Transsexual in the galaxy Transylvania, to be specific! With the clock ticking, the servants rebel and Janet and Brad are thrown to the mercy of the aliens... What will happen to these two lovebirds? You'll have to do the Time Warp to find out!
