Rocky Horror Show Live Recordings - 1975 Broadway Cast: 22 sound files        19,017 views

This is a recording from March 14th, 1975 of the (very short-lived) original run of The Rocky Horror Show at the Belasco Theatre on Broadway. It was taken from a 1/4" reel-to-reel tape kept by one of the sound engineers at the Belasco. The show opened on March 10th, 1975 so this was one of the first few performances. It features Tim Curry as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Richard O'Brien as Riff Raff, and Meat Loaf as Eddie/Dr. Scott along with the rest of the cast from the Roxy Theatre. All sound files contributed by Justin "Muzzle" Carpenter.
