This production is not the experience that Rocky Horror started out as, but is more of a tribute to the film. The director/designer, Nigel Triffitt was hired in 1992 despite the fact he had always disliked the show and the film.

    

Review:

 

The final outing for Nigel Triffitt's misguided production, this time at Star City Casino in Sydney, and touted as the 25th anniversary show. Bearing almost no resemblence to it's roots, this over-blown production is Rocky at it's worst, this time with the overly skinny Tim Ferguson as Frank and a cast of also-rans from previous runs of the same show. By 1998 the syrupy musical backing of this version was painfully dated.
