TV critics say Adam Lambert's role in The Rocky Horror Show is too 'brief'
'The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again' will be aired tomorrow evening (October 20) on Fox in the US at 8pm ET/PT, and some TV critics were lucky enough to see it early. Their reviews came in today.
The New York Times said:
"Adam Lambert has fun as Eddie, the ill-fated delivery boy."
USA Today said:
"(Lauren) Cox is engaging, as are most of her co-stars — and they do a fine job with the numbers you remember best."
The Hollywood Reporter said:
"Brad and Janet are lucky enough to show up for the Annual Transylvanian Convention, a gathering either attended or serviced by an assortment of outlandish personalities including Igor-esque Riff Raff (Reeve Carney), shrieky Magenta (Christina Milian) and lollipop-loving Columbia (Annaleigh Ashford) and briefly crashed by motorcycle-riding Eddie (Adam Lambert)."
Adam Lambert's appearance was also described as 'brief' by USA Today which illustrates the critics wanted to see more of the vocal powerhouse in this musical remake.
The Hollywood Reporter also remarked:
"It's one thing when Disney-ified singers like Justice and McCartan are produced to sound smoothed out and undistractingly bland, but Lambert and Carney both have recognizable voices and ample rock-musical chops, which you'd never know from "Time Warp" and "Hot Patootie."
That's the critics' verdict on this remake. The public will get to have theirs tomorrow evening. Do let Pressparty know what you think.
