Before it was a picture show—and required midnight feature programming, especially around this time of year—Rocky Horror was a stage musical. The cast of pH Comedy Theater's new production have clearly seen the movie many times, and they don't take many liberties with the now classic interpretations of the characters. But that doesn't mean they fail to do justice to the singing, dancing, fishnets, and high camp. Jake Farrington as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, Brett Mannes as Brad Majors (asshole!), and Tristan Tanner as Janet Weiss (slut!) are especially good. Audience participation is, of course, encouraged; if you're a Rocky Horror virgin, follow Trixie the usherette, who stands just offstage leading the heckling. There's also plenty of alcohol. As director Amy Couey notes, that always helps. —Aimee Levitt
