During the successful run of The Rocky Horror Show in London, American producer Lou Adler visited the show with actress Britt Ekland. He loved it and thought of bringing the show to his recently opened rock club in Los Angeles, the Roxy Theatre. After talking to producer Michael White at a party a couple of nights later, they quickly arranged a deal for the American theatrical rights. Tim Curry would reprise his role as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, while new performers were found for the other roles (including Meat Loaf as Eddie and Dr. Scott). The show had previews in the 500-seat theatre on March 19th and 20th, 1974, officially opened on March 21st, 1974, and closed January 5th, 1975 in preparation for the show's transfer to Broadway.
