On Friday night, my friend Aleshia and I dolled up and hit the Ordway to check out the fun and follies of the Rocky Horror Picture Show!
Somehow, we missed the memo that it was Sr. night at the Ordway, showing up as 2 of the 1/2 dozen that showed up in full Time Warp garb. The rest of the crowd was wearing leisure suits and pearls....but hey, who doesn't like a little fish-net stocking and black eye shadow every now and then??
The show was amazing! Not only did it come with the Audience Participation Pack so we could make noise and throw confetti along with the story, but the performers blew us away. The gentleman playing Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Monte Wheeler) could not have been better cast. From the moment he stepped into the spotlight, the Doc sounded exactly like Tim Curry. I've never had so much fun watching Rocky Horror in all my life! It was hysterical - especially since they encouraged the audience to heckle and interact with what was going on. Something this little crosser gets a major kick out of. (No cross-dressing pun intended). ;O)
I can't wait until next year to go see it again! If you're still looking for a fun night out, though, it's still playing through Nov. 25th. I strongly urge you to check it out!
Time Warpin' into the night,
