“I WOULD LIKE, IF I MAY, TO TAKE YOU ON A STRANGE JOURNEY…” – The Criminologist, Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
Hmm… So that blog title/headline might be a little redundant. After all, the The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the epitome of audience participation. Tim Curry, at his finest (as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, for those of you new to Rocky Horror), Susan Sarandon (as Janet… damn-it!), Barry Bostwick (as Brad), and even Meatloaf.
Fans of Rocky Horror know that dressing up is a lot of fun practically requisite, and know what to say / when to say it–all of whom will undoubtedly be there in full force (that said, it’s pertinent to mention the event is FREE, so fans aside, a free show always = a full house… get there early). Those ready to “give yourself over to absolute pleasure,” though it may be the month of scares, fear not–just show up ready for fun and you’ll catch on quick (and realize without a doubt that “you’ve arrived on a rather special night”). It is of particular importance to mention, thought, that the content (if you couldn’t tell) is quite provocative… so, this is strictly for the 18+ crowd and attendees will be required to show their IDs at the door.
For those old enough (and cool enough) to go, I’ll additionally inform you that the talented Rachel DeBoer will be doing themed body painting. Also, to happily reiterate, the whole shebang is FREE. So, “let’s do the time warp again” (and again, and again!) at this “late night double feature picture show”: Iao Theater, October 2nd at 8:00 p.m.
