In March 1974, The Rocky Horror Show made it to the States, on the West coast, in Los Angeles and opened on Sunset Boulevard . The cast only included Tim Curry from the original cast and Meatloaf who did his debut here. The show was scheduled for 9 months and then the musical would be turned into a movie,  The Rocky Horror Picture Show. At the beginning it was a commercial failure before becoming a cult movie and it still is, after more than 25 years.

The musical has always been very successful and it has been played throughout the world. Some international stars have played Frank, such as:
