Rocky Horror Show: Experience Live!
Richard O’ Brien’s Rocky Horror Show, the musical that went on to inspire the cinematic cult classic of the almost-same name, thrills and chills audiences with horror-laced comedy, riveting dance sequences, cross-dressing actors, and an iconic score. During the crazed yet campy odyssey, mad scientist and non-earthling Dr. Frank N. Furter and his castle-dwelling cronies attempt to corrupt Brad and Janet—a prudish young couple from the suburbs—with seductive dances and extended curfew hours. As the lovebirds gradually become more enthralled with the spooky jubilee, they encounter rock ‘n’ roll singing experiments gone wrong and a slew of rollicking tunes such as “Time Warp” and “Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul.”“Time Warp” in particular is at the heart of the spirited audience participation that characterizes many performances.
An Egyptian art-deco style anchors the Cameo Theatre, luring wandering eyes with polychrome accents, gilt columns, and a sphinx that permits entry only after guests solve a riddle. A surviving artifact of the 1940s, the theater first opened as a home for vaudeville acts and movies but has since filled its stage with a diverse roster of legendary performers from B.B. King to Metallica, and it now regularly hosts theatrical productions.
