Rocky Horror Picture Show

spoiler and indecency warning

“You gotta put a V on your forehead!”

My friend said this to me days before our highly anticipated trip to see the Rocky Horror Picture Show. A beloved local theater was closing, and with it was the end of a long era of Rocky Horror live.

We decided to catch the third to last showing and decked out in full makeup and risqué attire.


Outside the theater, the lines stretched for miles. People definitely went all out for the sold-out show.

After everyone got seated, audience members were selected for a crude affair. Three Rocky Horror virgins held Twinkle bars near their crotch while three others tried to eat them as fast as possible.

It was quite hilarious.

Then began the show.
Let there be lips!

The audience injected lines into the movie, danced to the Time Warp, and threw miscellaneous items at an unfortunate soul in row 5.

Overall, Rocky Horror was a lot of fun…though perhaps not quite my cup of tea…

    I was on a Rocky Horror cast for years here in Jersey, and that was after years more of going to shows in NJ and PA.

    But I think I know what cast you’re talking about, and it was where I saw my very first RHPS, too, while visiting a friend who was going to school in the area. Small world. 🙂

    They never got me into anything compromising. 😉

    I ran the tech crew, and during the show I ran the lights (we were a bit more technically sophisticated than many Rocky casts). The only time I was in costume was when they were hard up for a Criminologist standin.
