Welcome back, Rocky

If you somehow missed the rousing Artists’ Repertory Theatre production of “The Rocky Horror Show” in its recent October-November run — what were you thinking? It’s a smart, tart experience that explodes with enthusiasm. Luckily, you have a second chance. The company is bringing back “Rocky” for a five-performance encore run at the Cal Arts Severance Theatre. The production opens 8 p.m. tonight and continues through Monday with a closing New Year’s Eve performance.

This version is basically the same cast — with one well-known local theater name replacing another in a leading role. Terry Lewis will play Riff Raff, replacing Brian Pucheu, who was committed to perform in California Public Theater’s “RENT.”

To remind you of just how good this production is, here’s my Beehive review. Here’s my 7 cover story on opening day, and here’s a fun chat with director/star Daniel Chavez Jr., “Fresno’s most flexible hot dog.” Maybe what you need to spice up your New Year’s weekend is a little “Time Warp.”
