The following is meant to be a quick guide to help newcomers enjoy the unfettered weirdness that is The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The Rocky Horror Picture Show was released in and was not well-received by audiences or critics. The movie is supposed to become interactive. But have no fear, young virgin!

TimeWarp - The Virgins Guide to Rocky Horror
Frank-N-Furter is a character from theatrical and cinematographic productions of The Rocky Horror Show since to this day, including the original film , the tribute production celebrating 40 years, and the reimagining film. He is a mad scientist, bent on creating the perfect life form to serve as his sexual plaything. He seems to be the leader of the Transylvanians on Earth. Frank-N-Furter is mainly concerned with himself and lacks the ability to see the consequences of his behavior. Though he did bring out the sexual creatures in a young, repressed couple, he did this with his own amusement in mind. He was portrayed by Tim Curry in the Original London Production, in the Roxy Production, in the Broadway Production, and in the film adaptation; by Tom Hewitt in the Broadway Revival, by David Bedella in the live tribute production, and by actress Laverne Cox in the reimagining made-for-TV movie, where Frank is a female and depicted as a transgender woman. Frank is holding an annual, Transylvanian science convention at his castle to showcase the birth of his newest experiment, "Rocky Horror" - a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank's sexual desires.
And what some might not be aware of is how seriously Rocky culture is for those inside it. Here in Orlando, The Rich Weirdoes reign supreme. I have been a member of this shadow cast for a little over a year now. But before I was on the cast I was just like every other Virgin, unprepared and completely out of my comfort zone. A troupe of actors who perform the scenes from the film as it plays on a movie screen behind them.
