Times have been tough for the riffraff who haunted University City during The Rocky Horror Picture Show
's long midnight movie run at the Tivoli. Sure, there's the annual Halloween revival, but opportunities to visit with old friends Brad Majors, Janet Weiss and the irrepressible Dr. Frank N. Furter have been few and far between — until now! Thursday through Saturday (July 9 through 18) The [insert name here] Theatre Project (A Stray Dog Theatre Production) performs The Rocky Horror Show
, Richard O'Brien's musical that was adapted into the most successful midnight movie of all time. Rocky
blends rock & roll, sci-fi and horror into an unforgettable kitschy cult classic filled with Transylvanian transvestites, hunchbacked handymen and plenty of sex and song. Please remember that this show is not interactive, so leave the squirt guns and rice at home, don't sing along and don't shout out any of the add-on dialogue. The Rocky Horror Show
blasts off at 9 p.m. nightly at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; 314-865-1995 or www.straydogtheatre.org
). Tickets are $15.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: July 9. Continues through July 18, 2009
