1. SAY GOODBYE TO ‘ROCKY’
If you haven’t yet seen the Artists’ Repertory Theatre production of “The Rocky Horror Show,” what are you thinking? It’s a great evening. Here’s my review. There are two more performances: 8 p.m. today and Saturday. [Details]
We had such a good time a couple of weeks ago giving tickets away to the rockin’ production of “The Rocky Horror Show” at the Severance Theatre that we decided to do it again. I’m giving away two seats to the 7 p.m. Sunday performance this weekend.
To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question: Do you think Brad and Janet will make it to their 10th wedding anniversary? (If you’ve never seen the show, just guess.) I’ll select one comment at random as a winner. Deadline is 2:30 p.m. today (less than an hour from now, so hurry). If you enter, please remember to check your email, because that’s how I’ll be notifying winners. Tickets will be available at Will Call. Complete rules are on the jump.
“Glee,” 8 p.m. KMPH (Channel 26.1): Let’s do the Time Warp again. The cast of “Glee” has finally gotten around to performing “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” for this week’s Halloween episode.
You can thank Clovis resident Chris Colfer for the episode. He’s been bugging the creators to perform the wild stage show ever since the Fox series started.
Colfer’s character of Kurt ends up playing the role of Riff Raff. And, it was a role he was born to play.
Besides being a natural musical presentation for the series, the fact “Rocky Horror” deals with adult themes opens up the chance to talk about the role of art in education. It also might create some distraction from all of the controversy surrounding the sexy photos of cast members in this month’s edition of GQ.
Look for this episode to become an instant “Glee” classic.
You know how it is when you find something you love and instantly you want everyone you know to love it, too? Here is a list of things the Beehive is into at this very moment.
We invite you to share your obsession in the comments.
Donald: I’m obsessed with Artists’ Repertory Theater’s production of “The Rocky Horror Show” at Severance Building. Can’t stop talking it up to people. I wrote my column on Sunday about Daniel Chavez Jr., the talented actor/director/choreographer who plays Frank ‘N’ Furter, the sweet transvestite from another planet. Add to that a big advance 7 cover story on the show on opening day and a lengthy Beehive review, and I admit it’s been a tsunami of coverage. Why such enthusiasm? It’s a sharp production, of course, with some great singing, dancing and creative use of the Severance space. The chance to hear a pipin’ hot live band is a big plus, too. But more than just the quality of the show, what makes me so pro-”Rocky” is that it truly feels like a community theatrical event. The amount of work that went into this production is obvious — and the energy that the cast and crew gives is infectious. I know that I’m going back to see it again.
Heather: OMG. So adctd2txt. TTYL. OBTW, Mwah.
