Darn, this deal has expired.
I saw the Rocky Horror Show at Firehouse Theatre on opening weekend, and it was fabulous. Based on the sheer awesome of the show’s poster alone, I had no doubt it would be a fun night out, plus any time is a good time to do the Time Warp again.
Not to be mistaken for the Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Rocky Horror Show is based on the same material, only without the audience participation & movie and with an edgier vibe. Terence Sullivan makes for a fantastic Frank N. Furter, and Nick Shackleford & Aly Wepplo are everything that Brad & Janet should be–naive, nerdy, and perfect prey to be seduced by The Castle’s inhabitants.
Rocky Horror Show runs through August 19, 2012. On the OK-to-do list: Feel free to dress up & sing along, but for the safety of the actors & patrons, skip out on throwing any items on stage or in the theatre. If you really need to get your rice-and-toast throwing fix, track down a showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show with audience participation at RockyHorror.com.
Rocky Horror Show is intended for mature audiences.
Tickets to Rocky Horror Show are regularly $28, but admission drops to $26 for seniors and $14 for students with ID. Sundays are pick-your-price matinees; if tickets are still available on the day of the show, then you can pick your ticket price to attend the 3:00 p.m. performances of Rocky Horror Show. But as an FYI, that ‘if’ is a big if. Given Rocky Horror’s popularity, I’d be surprised if any tickets will be available on the day of most performance.
The Firehouse Theatre is an intimate space, so even the “worst” seats in the house are still very good seats. And there’s ample free parking for Firehouse Theatre patrons in the Lowe’s parking lot across the street from the theater.
Firehouse Theatre is located at 1609 West Broad Street, Richmond. 804-355-2001.
