REVIEW: The Rocky Horror Show
"an ambitious, glorious, gutsy, sexy and delightful production, ending in a spontaneous packed audience sing-and-dance along to "The Time Warp" and a standing O... Magical direction from a rising pro"
-Jack Marshall, Georgetown Gilbert & Sullivan Society Founder
I'm pretty sure if I had told the late Prof.Richard Alan Gordon, whom I was trying to talk into playing the Judge in my production of "Trial By Jury" at Georgetown Law Center 42 years ago, that I had used my DeLorean to go forward in time to 2015 and found that the tradition he made possible would lead to an uncensored law student production of "The Rocky Horror Show," complete with near nudity, simulated sex acts of all kinds, cross-dressing and more,...like LASERS!... Dick would have backed out.
Saw the GG&SS production's opening tonight, and what an ambitious, glorious, gutsy, sexy and delightful production, ending in a spontaneous packed audience sing-and-dance along to "The Time Warp" and a standing O.. Magical direction from a rising pro who was able to get her cast to trust her sufficiently to expose nearly, all, grope almost anything, and use theatrical sexuality for all it's worth. Brilliant lights, marvel of a set, witty costumes, what there was of them, and the fact that a law student Tim Curry surfaced who could belt and walk in 9 inch heals didn't hurt a bit. I was so proud of the group tonight, and all I could think about was how much Mitch Dale and Myron would have gotten a kick out of it.
