Hehe, what were the other props used? I recall the lighters at the beginning but my mind fades after that.

And just who in the heck do they think can replace Tim Curry and Meatloaf?

I watch "Glee" and I actually liked most of what they did with it.

Meatloaf and Barry Bostwick had guest roles.

Franknfurter was "played" by a short, heavy black woman (yeah I know, kinda ruins the whole part about him being a man in a corset and fish net stockings), and Eddie was "played" by John Stamos. On the show they didn't end up doing the musical for anyone but themselves because of the content was a bit more then teenagers really should be seeing.

Playing cards, party hats, toast, rice.

I saw the Broadway version and although the actors were great, they didn't come close to the original cast.

My daughter's middle school did a (very slightly) edited version of Rocky Horror. My daughter played Janet. Susan Sarandon came to the dress rehearsal and took questions from the kids. They had a ball and so did the parents!

I was a devoted fan of the midnight showing here at SF' Strand theatre; it was our Saturday night ritual in the '80s. The lighters, the toilet paper, rice and dust were the props and the crowd went wild. Nothing like it has ever come around again, it was social networking in fishnets.

Re-making it would be a crime. They'll never replace any of the cast, no matter what they do.

I grew up on Rocky, I remember my mom playing the movie soundtrack when I was a young child. I was told I couldn't see the movie until I was 18, but I didn't see it until it was on video, and was in my 20s before I saw it in the theatre. Unfortunately the midnight showing I went to was on July 5th, so it was sparsely filled because everyone else was celebrating the holiday, bummer :(

Here!...Here!....And with such unbridled vigorous passion when reciting and singing the lines....closest thing I ever experienced to RHS was the 70 plus Grateful Dead Concerts I experienced......
