General Comments
If you liked Rocky Horror, you will love this show too. This was a one night show at this theatre on November 5th, so it made for a great bonfire night out, the show is now touring the UK. The rock musical fantasy is set in New York in 2030. Steve Steinman with with his unique tongue in cheek humour, is the charismatic and evil vampire, Baron Von Rockula, who is the owner of the club Live and Let Die. At his side is Stringfellow, the Baron's dwarfish sidekick, who tries to be evil, reminded me a bit of Dudley Moore. The show is the brainchild of Steve Steinman, he is best known for the Meatloaf Story which he has toured the world with. He did a wondeful job, having experience of many many years touring the world with his 'Meatloaf story'. Anyone who loves Rock Anthems, Rock Music, will love this show. It will get you clapping you hands and singing along to the rock classic music, with great musical scores by great musicians. Baron Rockula is looking for a bride, and Pandora plays a wonderful part,(great outfits) she eventually falls for him., unfortunately, the pyrotechnics must have made the fire alarms go off, luckily at the end of the show, and we didn't get any photos at the end of the show with the cast. We are certainly going to the show next time it's in the area, see web site for full details, oh and remember to dress up.

Richfost's Response to estelle's Review

This show was really poor, like a bad childrens rock pantomime. The musicians are middle of the road and insult most of the original rock riffs from the classic rock hits they sing. Had a really bad time watching this show as I just couldn't get into the cheap gags, I thought I was going to see a rock concert but I learnt my lesson and will stick to festivals in the future!!!!
