For six nights only the cult-classic musical is taking over the Edinburgh Playhouse Theatre, with former Blue member, Duncan James, playing the iconic role of Frank'N'Furter.

James is joined by former Strictly Come Dancing professional Joanne Clifton and James Darch who team up as geeky duo, Janet and Brad Majors.

When Brad and Janet's car breaks down outside a creepy mansion while they're on their way to visit a former college professor, they meet the charismatic transvestite scientist Dr Frank n Furter, and end up having a thrilling evening in a house full of wild characters.
