Rocky Horror [no Picture] Show

Leave a comment

I get invited to plays put on at UW each year. Not exactly sure why I get the invites, but I’m guessing it’s because I donate, and have given my email address. At any rate, this year the performance was a live version of the Rocky Horror Show.

I must say, that was great fun. The story (such as it is), and songs are pretty much exactly like the movie. But it’s really cool to see it live, and the actors / musicians / makeup and costume people / videographers did a great job. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and would highly recommend it, even if you don’t get to go free (like we did) and don’t get to eat pastries afterward (like we did).

Plus, you’ll be spared the somewhat uncomfortable experience we had in being at a “special” performance full of dignitaries. Who tend to be a little mor, uh, aged.

Cause sweet transvestites from transsexual Transylvania? A bit of a weird thing to be watching with people who remind you of your grandparents.
