Fox’s THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has announced casting for its two hour event, scheduled to air this fall. Ben Vereen (former Wizard – Broadway, Chicago) will take on the part of Dr. Everett Scott, played by Jonathan Adams in the 1975 movie. Annaleigh Ashford (former Glinda – Chicago, Broadway; former ensemble, u/s Glinda – 1st Natl. Tour) joins the cast as Columbia.

THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a reimagining of the cult classic. It follows sweethearts Janet and Brad, who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist – with the help of his faithful servants, Riff Raff and Magenta – is holding an annual, Transylvanian Science convention to showcase the birth of “Rocky Horror”  – a fit, attractive man created solely to fulfill Frank’s desires.
