I was very uncertain
21 October 2015 | by jeffreycfaulSee all my reviews

as I was in the generation that saw the film in Toronto 200-300 times at the Roxy theater and never heard a word of it as we the audience began our responses as soon as the opening credits rolled. What an amazing time !. However with the limitations of the stage I don't think Richard O'Brien would have done this unless it was very high quality. And it is. But always try to see the Rocky Horror film in a crowded theater . I give it 10 sweet transvestites. The music is great. the story remains intact from the film. they allow audience participation. the guest stars are hilarious. Hats off ! As well as whatever else you might be wearing. The actors and vocalists are first class. on the web there is an old interview with Tim Curry explaining the genesis of Rocky Horror as Curry had a play in the downstairs of a London theater and O'Brien , who had this concept was playing upstairs in another play and one night the two got to talking about it. Thank You jeff in Toronto.
