Fox has just announced Ivy Levan has joined The Rocky Horror Picture Show cast as ‘Usherette.’ Singer/songwriter Levan’s first album No Good was released in August 2015 and her credits include songs in Cinemax’s Banshee, 90210, and the Melissa McCarthy comedy, Spy.
Levan joins a cast that is led by Orange is the New Black‘s Laverne Cox as Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Victoria Justice (Victorious) will play Janet and Liv & Maddie‘s Ryan McCartan is Brad. American Idol alum Adam Lambert will take on the role of Eddie, Penny Dreadful‘s Reeve Carney is Riff Raff, and Staz Nair from Game of Thrones is Rocky. Annaleigh Ashford from Masters of Sex is confirmed to play Columbia, Christina Milian is Magenta, and Ben Vereen is tackling the role of Dr. Everett Scott. The original Frank-N-Furter, Tim Curry, is on board as the Criminologist Narrator.
The High School Musical franchise’s Kenny Ortega is directing, choreographing, and executive producing. Fox will air the two-hour musical later this year.
The Plot: The Rocky Horror Picture Show follows sweethearts Janet (Justice) and Brad (McCartan), who stumble upon Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s (Cox) bizarre abode. Frank-N-Furter, a sexually ambiguous, flirtatious alien mad-scientist, 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.
