The Rocky Horror Show

By Richard O’Brien

Directed by Dennis Courtney

Let’s do the Timewarp Again! Thirty-six years after Richard O’Brien’s high-camp spoof of 1950’s B-movies debuted in London, audiences are still hot for a little Frank-N-Furter action! Watch as Magenta, Riff-Raff, Columbia and the rest of the Transylvanians scare (or seduce…) the pants right off Brad and Janet! Wear your costumes, bring your hotdogs, water pistols, and newspapers, and give yourself over to “absolute pleasure.”
