As theater kids, I think it's safe to assume we are all in a state of heightened *anticipation* for the Fox's remake of Rocky Horror Picture Show airing on October 20th. I'm particularly excited about Laverne Cox in the role of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a role originally mastered by the inimitable Tim Curry. In my opinion, this is a brilliant casting choice that will revive the cult classic and keep entertained all who tune in.

I found an interview with Cox on Broadway.com wherein she discusses her role in Rocky Horror along with other dream stage parts. We discover that not only was she already a huge fan before being cast as Frank-N-Furter, but that she is already an accomplished singer. It's a truly lovely read!
