Bucks County Playhouse has announced that Kevin Cahoon (The Wedding Singer) will take on the role of Dr. Frank-n-Furter in its upcoming production of Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show, replacing the originally cast Will Swenson, who bowed out of the musical to join the off-Broadway company of Little Miss Sunshine at Second Stage Theatre. Tony nominee Hunter Foster directs the cult-classic musical, set to run from October 23-November 2.
As previously announced, Cahoon joins a cast featuring Nick Cearley as Brad, Lauren Molina as Janet, Jennifer Cody as Columbia, Nick Adams as Rocky, Jeremy Kushnier as Riff Raff, Steve Rosen as Dr. Scott/Eddie/Narrator, and Alyssa DiPalma as Magneta.
The theater has also announced a special 11pm concert of the Nick Cearley and Lauren Molina's scantily clad musical group The Skivvies, to follow the November 1 performance. Tony winner Alice Ripley will perform as a special guest, along with Rocky Horror cast members Adams, Kushnier, and Rosen, who plan to "strip down and rock out."
