Rocky Horror Show Aliens Invade San Diego’s Old Globe Theatre!

Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show

Richard O'Brien's The Rocky Horror Show at the Old Globe

The Old Globe Theatre’s version of Richard O’Brien’s The Rocky Horror Show opened in the Conrad Prebys Theatre Center (9/15/2011 – 11/6/2011) to an audience of newbies (affectionately known as “virgins”) as well as long-time Rocky Horror Show followers. First timers to this live theatre show not in the know were caught off-guard by patrons dressed in costume and participating as if they part of the troupe, even going so far as to yell lines back at the stage. A cult classic from the early 70’s, Rocky Horror Show patrons are encouraged to participate by purchasing selected props made available by the Old Globe such as a newspaper, flashlight, balloon and playing cards. These props were then used at the same time the actors use them on stage. The acting was entertaining, the story line interesting and the costumes a little risqué making for a really fun adult experience.

Originally started as a theatrical production in June 1973, The Rocky Horror Show enjoyed a long run on London stages before being transformed into the cult movie classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. A time-warp experience for sure, this musical that became a cultural phenomenon is definitely worth seeing on stage at least once, and then you’ll want to bring your friends…
