Come up to the lab…and see what’s on the slab . . . The infamous Rocky Horror Show has been terrifying and tantalizing audiences for decades now, telling the story of Brad Majors and Janet Weiss as they stumble into the gloved clutches of cross-dressing mad scientist Dr. Frank N. Furter, eager to show off Rocky, his latest creation. Along the way, the audience is treated to some of the rockingest show tunes around, from the saucy “Sweet Transvestite” to the high-energy “Hot Patootie – Bless My Soul” to the unforgettable “Time Warp” (It’s just a jump to the left…). The show, which spawned arguably the most prolific “midnight movie” of all time in 1975’s The Rocky Horror Picture Show, will be strutting into the IE until Feb. 19, bringing Richard O’Brien’s campy classic to San Jacinto’s Inland Stage Company (formerly the Murrieta Repertory Theatre). I know you’re enthusiastic, but try to leave the rice, newspapers and squirt guns at home.
The Rocky Horror Show at Inland Stage Company, 2181 W. Esplanade Ave., San Jacinto; www.inlandstage.org. Thru Feb. 19.
