Photo Flash: Nick Adams in Lyric's THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW
Nick Adams is playing the role of "Rocky" at the Lyric Theatre in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The show runs through November 1st, 2008. Adams, 25, recently starred in Broadway's A Chorus Line as Larry -- opposite Mario Lopez -- and soon will be recognized for his upcoming 2(x)ist underwear campaign.
The theater-turned-big-screen actor just completed filming "An Englishman in New York," starring two-time Oscar nominee John Hurt. Nick has also graced the Broadway stage in Chicago and The Pirate Queen. He will soon be seen in the upcoming Broadway revival of GUYS & DOLLS as "Liver Lips Louis", the production will be directed by Des McAnuff and choreographed by Sergio Trujillo.
Lyric Theatre, Oklahoma's premiere professional theatre company concludes the 2007-2008 "Lyric at the Plaza" season with the big, bad, rock-n-roll musical, The Rocky Horror Show. From October 9th through November 1st, Lyric will present the live version of the spectacular cult classic film about the madcap adventures of Brad Majors and his fiancée Janet Weiss, who approach the spooky Frankenstein place to find help for a flat tire. In the house, though, they encounter the maniacal Dr. Frank ‘N' Furter, the rippling Rocky, the vivacious Magenta, and experience the boldest, naughtiest party of their lives.
Lyric's production of The Rocky Horror Show is directed and choreographed by Nick Demos and will be his final show at the helm of Lyric Theatre.
The Rocky Horror Show was first created by writer/actor Richard O'Brien as a stage musical in 1973. The cinematic version starring Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon followed two years later and went on to become one of the most famous and ardently followed cult films of all time. This popularity has kept the live musical in almost continuous production at theatres around the world ever since.
Like all Lyric productions, The Rocky Horror Show features a blend of talent both from New York and from Oklahoma. Monte Wheeler (Off-Broadway: The IT Girl, Streakin!) stars as Frank ‘N' Furter, Bradley Beahen (assistant director- Enter Laughing, the Musical) performs as Brad, and Oklahoma native Heather Hawkins (Broadway: Avenue Q) gets down and dirty as Janet. Jennifer Byrne (Evil Dead the Musical; It's Karate, Kid the Musical) is cast as Columbia.
