I took my husband to see RHPS twice over the last 2 years. David Bedella played Frankenfurter on both occasions. We were wondering how many different actors have played the role in all.

Can anyone help me get a longer list so I can beat my other half????

That's a tall order...

Wow.

The ones I can think of off-hand:

Tim Curry
Gonzalo Vega
Reg Livermore
Daniel Abineri
Gary Glitter
Richard O'Brien
Tim McInnerny
Helgi Björnsson
Bob Simon
Tom Hewitt
Terrance Mann
Neil Minor
Rob Fowler

The list goes on. Then there are all of the amateur productions... Maybe someone more well versed with Rocky can help further.

Yes and Perry played Frank too. My resource is Perry Bedden HIMSELF

I spoke with him at great length at the Celluloid Jam convention and I not only have a picture given to me persoannly of him having played Frank but it's also listed on his personal website as well. So you have two most certain resources for Perry having played Frank.

There's also an interview on Play It Again...Rocky with Perry Bedden saying that he played Riff but was also Frank on a number of occasions.
