The Rocky Horror Show
OKC's Lyric does the Time Warp
Let’s dance again to the astounding, the fleeting, the madness of Transexual Transylvania’s most happening haunted castle. Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma brings back its hit production The Rocky Horror Show, opening Wednesday, Oct. 16, at Lyric at the Plaza, 1727 N.W. 16th St., in Oklahoma City. The cult classic by Richard O’Brien was originally staged in 1973 in London and was followed by the 1975 film Rocky Horror Picture Show with Tim Curry. Unlike anything that had been seen before, Rocky gained a huge following with its rock-fantasy tribute to B-horror flicks and characters such as the corseted mad scientist, Dr. Frank ‘n’ Furter and his alien house staff. For all that, however, Rocky would be an altogether different experiment without its music. Can you imagine Riff Raff answering the door without the fanfare of “Time Warp?” Throw yourself in again. Shows run through Nov. 2, and tickets are $40, available at www.lyrictheatreokc.com. Go online for a show schedule and more.
