Description

For a show (and cult film) out of the mid-1970s, The Rocky Horror Show was  ahead of its time in its depiction of queerness and gender and—save a handful of instances—has aged surprisingly well enough to fit into this contemporary time. Neptune Theatre's production opens this week (running through June 26) and director Jeremy Webb and actors Allister MacDonald (Dr. Frank N Furter) and Breton Lalama (Riff Raff) squeeze in a chat between tech run-throughs to dig into how they've updated (and produced) the show with 2022 eyes—namely an intimacy director and active consent between characters—and whether they're prepared for the rare theatre audience that talks back. Plus a new song from Nicole Ariana.
