Saturday Night: The Rocky Horror Picture Show Live!

Looking for something new to do on Saturday nights?
Once a month, the Rocky Horror Picture Show is live at the Albany Twin.




It was a little after midnight and the eccentrically dressed crowd only began to settle down after a mysterious, pale faced, hunchbacked man by the name of Riff Raff came out onto the stage at the Albany Twin.

Riff Raff, with his rock tenor voice, called upon the virgins, those who had never witnessed the Rocky Horror Picture Show live before, of the audience to advance to the stage.

It was my first time to witness this spectacular, so by the urging of my friends, I joined the other anxiously awaiting virgins. What we did next was something that must remain unknown, unless you, yourself, go to the show, but what I can tell you is that I experienced something I would never in my life have imagined ever doing.

I was forced to rise out of my shell by the tap of a finger, and perform on stage, which is an exhilarating and nerve-racking feeling. And this was only the introduction to the Transylvanians, who come from the planet Transsexual, in the far off galaxy of Transylvania.

The virgins then settled back into their seats, and the movie began.

As soon as the opening credits rolled onto the screen, the cast, as well as the audience, jumped into action, and they remained engaged for the next one hour and 40 minutes.

During that time much occurred: there was the tossing of toast, the blowing of bubbles, the memorization of lines, crude comments, singing, and of course, the ever famous, time warp.

During this moment, the majority of the audience stood up, took a jump to the left, a step to the right, placed their hands on their hips, bent their knees, thrust their pelvises, spun in a circle, jumped forward then back, and wiggled.

It was a sight to see, and something I normally would have never imagined myself doing. But, in that moment, everyone was so wrapped up in having a good time that appearance didn't matter.

Attending the Rocky Horror Picture Show live was definitely a different experience. It was something new, a little bit crazy, and a whole lot of fun. I highly recommend it to anyone with an open mind.

For $10 I received something to remember forever. I went there afraid of the unknown, and left with a new sense of adventure. In one night I dealt with my fear of performing and interacted with an entirely new group of people.

My experience at the Rocky Horror Picture show will probably not be yours, but at the very least, it will be a unique one.
