Hooper describes the show as a cabaret performance filled with great anecdotes from the theatre world about his own experiences plus great tales he’s heard about and shamelessly stolen.

“Over the last five or six years as I’ve been working with people like Ian McKellen and Richard O’Brien,” said Hooper, “and that’s give me some great stories to tell, and I’ll be talking about the Rocky Horror Show, only if just as an excuse to take my shirt off’.

The performer recalls when having drinks with Rocky Horror Show creator Richard O’Brien and the two began to argue over who would get the next round.

“Eventually he said to me, ‘Vinnie are you a millionaire Vinnie?’ and I said ‘no’, and he said ‘I am a millionaire. So I’ll be getting the drinks.’”

The singer tells us he has a great range of songs to perform in the show alongside his tales of adventure.

‘Stolen Treasures’ is Downstairs at the Maj, 5-7 September, tickets through Ticketek here.

 

We think Hooper is a bit of a treasure we’d like to steal…
