It’s a night out you’re going to remember for a very long time. Sneak Peak Vail gives us the 411 and a great interview with Denver-based director Nick Sugar on the live production of “The Rocky Horror Show” appearing at the Homestake Peak School auditorium in EagleVail this month.
After taking a break last October, the crew at Vail Valley Theater Company again sets aside self-restraint, gender norms and common decency for its third live production of “The Rocky Horror Show.” The cult classic is in town for two weekends of pre-Halloween debauchery, complete with all the cross-dressing and toast throwing fans have come to expect over the past 40 years.
If that seems like a long time for an irreverent spoof to survive, well, it is. Certain parts of “Rocky Horror” were outdated when it premiered in 1973 – the opening number references everything from Fay Wray to “Forbidden Planet” – and yet, the show continues to attract new generations of weekend cross-dressers to midnight showings across the world. It’s the ultimate cultural farce: A show that doesn’t take itself seriously, but has managed to achieve a level of immortality regardless.
Like the cheesy B-movies it honors, the plot of “Rocky Horror” hardly matters. Instead, CLICK to READ the WHOLE ARTICLE!
