Every time someone tells me how Rocky Horror helped them discover their sexuality, I remember how it helped me lose mine. I was an awkward teenager, but men twice my age cheered for me because my performative make-out session made them feel something. I felt like I had found a cheat code: It was acceptable to make out with girls if men were entertained by it. This became a party trick I performed for years; a thick coat of red lipstick over my real feelings. Only later did it occur to me to be unsettled by a group of adults instructing teenage girls to act out softcore porn for their entertainment.
If you haven't experienced The Rocky Horror Picture Show complemented by a live shadow cast, patrons are in for a treat. The actors dress up like the film characters and act out the film as it is playing behind them. Nine and Numb Entertainment's talented shadow cast adds a fun, immersive element the movie screening, allowing the audience to yell back at the characters and use venue-permitted props. Kelly credits an ornery fire marshall for being at the inception of the shadow cast show. Initially the event was supposed to be a haunted house, but a fire marshall shut down the debut concept and Kelly was left with an empty space to fill. The venue suggested using the space to show a Halloween-themed movie and Kelly remembered how fun shadow casting The Rocky Horror Picture Show had been with his Nine and Numb improv comedy troupe.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Jim Sharman 95min. Review Our Score. This surprisingly witty and wickedly naughty Queen Mother of cult movies is a campy, vampy, kinky musical send-up of old horror flicks.
