‘Rocky Horror’ plans gala 35th cel­e­bra­tion

Los Angeles Times - - At The Movies - — Betsy Sharkey

“Let’s do the Time Warp again .…” If the lyric con­jures up a mid­night me­mory of the best sort of freak­out, as it does for me, this week­end is a way to truly do the Time Warp again in style at “The Rocky Horror Pic­ture Show” 35th an­niver­sary bash Satur­day night at the Mil­lion Dol­lar Theater in down­town L.A. This is no or­di­nary screen­ing filled with cross-dress­ing friends (or fiends), but it will fea­ture the fab lo­cal “RHPS” “shad­ow­cast” troupe Sins O’ the Flesh in full re­galia and even fuller voice — this is, af­ter all, as much about who’s per­form­ing in front of the screen as on it. Of course, if cross-dress­ing isn’t your thing, rest as­sured that the jeans and T-shirt crowd is equally wel­come on planet Trans­sex­ual, be­cause if the camp-clas­sic riff on horror movies and out­siders is about any­thing, it’s in­clu­sion. Tim Curry is cer­tainly at his most mem­o­rable if not his ab­so­lute best as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, show­ing the newly en­gaged cou­ple Brad and Janet (Barry Bost­wick and Su­san Saran­don) a more flam­boy­ant slice of life. Bost­wick will be on hand. But come for the scene and the mu­sic — ri­otous and rich, and there for ev­ery­one to sing along.
