Dust off those fishnets, Kevin Cahoon! The Broadway vet will star as Dr. Frank-n-Furter in director Hunter Foster’s upcoming production of The Rocky Horror Show at Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Playhouse. The show runs from October 23 through November 2, with select special late night showings.
Cahoon joins previously announced stars Nick Adams as Rocky, Nick Cearley as Brad, Jennifer Cody as Columbia, Alyssa DiPalma as Magenta, Jeremy Kushnier as Riff Raff, Lauren Molina as Janet, Steve Rosen as Scott/Eddie/Narrator and Bucks County locals Sarah DeNight, Annabelle Garcia, Alex Kryger and Erica Nicole Rothman.
The show features choreography by Lorin Latarro, set design by David L. Arsenault and Wilson Chin, costume design by Nicole V. Moody, lighting design by Travis McHale, sound design by Ed Chapman and music direction by Alex Harrington.
Following the November 1 performance, Cearley and Molina will perform a concert as their group The Skivvies, a nearly-nude pair that enlists Broadway actors for scantily-clad performances of popular songs. The concert will include Alice Ripley (who starred in the 2000 Broadway revival of Rocky Horror), as well as Adams, Kushnier and Rosen.
Written by Richard O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Show is a cult classic musical about an innocent couple that seeks shelter in a mysterious castle on a dark and stormy night, where they encounter sweet (and insane) transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter.
Cahoon starred on Broadway in The Wedding Singer, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Rocky Horror Show (as understudy Frank-N-Furter), The Lion King and The Who’s Tommy.
