When I was 13, I saw Rocky Horror for the first time. Understanding that Tim Curry, the actor I liked from Clue the movie, was dressed in drag was a pivotal moment for me. I liked the idea that there is a gothic mansion in the middle of nowhere where a bunch of freaks party 24/7.
I saw a local production by Ray of Light Theater the other night, and it was quite good. There’s a live band, quality singing and acting, and the appropriate amount of raunchiness. Go sing along to Time Warp before it leaves the stage on November 17.
