    I've always been a huge fan of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, so I was excited to see a FAQ about it. I've only ever seen the movie, but I knew it was a stage show. I went into the book expecting the same sort of campy fun that the movie was. And while it was a bit dry, it was interesting. I've always loved Tim Curry, so I enjoyed reading his experience as Frank and how it always came up in his career. Admittedly, I skimmed through parts of it.

I'm not familiar with a lot of the people who had something to do with Rocky {this covers everything from set/costume designers to actors and music}. For me, the best part was the chronological list of important Rocky news and key actors. Overall, if you're a fan of Rocky {regardless it's stage or movie} this has a lot of intriguing stories and photos. **Huge thanks to Cinema Books and Edelweiss for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

    At first I thought this was a badly named book, until I realized that “FAQ” refers to a book series (similar to “for Dummies”) and not the format of the book. There is a great deal of information about the history and origins of the stage show, which is interesting, and also every single major production around the world and every single actor who ever played a role in one, which is not. The first half of the book is tolerable as narrative, but after that it becomes useful only for its dry researc At first I thought this was a badly named book, until I realized that “FAQ” refers to a book series (similar to “for Dummies”) and not the format of the book.

The first half of the book is tolerable as narrative, but after that it becomes useful only for its dry research details. I’m guessing there are more entertaining sources for the story, and more concise sources for the facts.
