I was searching for something else, and came across this interesting article on the current Rocky Horror Show production in Australia:

http://www.australianstage.com.au/blogs/task,view/id,1227/

It's a rather critical article, particularly of Richard O'Brien who is taken to task both for his post-1990 insistence on large print recognition (i.e. "Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show" in all advertising) and the lack of recognition for the other originators: fellow Australians Jim Sharman and Brian Thomson as well as Sue Blane and Richard Hartley. Richard is also accused of (in concert with Howard Panter) meddling in this new Australian production late in its rehearsal stages, insisting on a number of changes to make it more in keeping with traditional productions of the play.

Hmm. Intersting, and some good points. (and great pics)
But, for the record, the "Last Supper" he mentions isn't at all like the movie, they aren't eating anything and the dialogue is the same as it should be. But I otherwise agree.
