(Dominic Cavendish’s article appeared in the Telegraph, 9/16.) 

The applause that greets Richard O’Brien when he walks out on stage to take a supporting yet pride-of-place part in the phenomenon he created, which made his name and for which he will long be remembered is of a kind you seldom hear in a theatre: thunderous clapping mingling with a roar of approval that takes on a life of its own, refusing to abate. 

It may not be world-event news, O’Brien coming back to “Rocky Horror” – to play the role of the Narrator for the first time in more than 20 years – but for those who get to witness it, it really might qualify as something to tell those nominal grandchildren about.
