“What’s that spell?” (“ROCKY!”)
“I can’t hear you!” (“ROCKY!!”)
“One more time!!” (“ROCKY!!!”) (and some funster in the audience yelling out “ADRIAN!!!” – Probably me, or another manifestation of me.)
(Note: This post was updated on October 12, 2016.Broadway Bound and Gagged has had its final curtain call, and a new cast has risen like a Phoenix – pardon the pun – from the ashes. The Floor Show Of Phoenix is the new Rocky Horror cast, continuing a decades long tradition of Absolute Pleasure in the Grand Canyon State.)
Rocky, being not the meat packing plant employee/collection enforcer who fought his way from the streets to being one of the greatest fictional boxers the world has know, but a somewhat taller, slimmer, not too bright guy who happened to be brought to life by a crazed extraterrestrial scientist… I’m talking about “The ONE! The ONLY! The ORIGINAL—” Richard O’Brien’s greatest gift to cult film fans the world over… The Rocky Horror Picture Show!
Jessica Harper, while taking a bit of time getting used to her in the role of Janet (Weiss) Majors, had a pretty incredible singing voice for the time this film was made. I really liked her performance in the earlier Phantom Of The Paradise film.)
(omg omg omg she has a website, and a blog, and she still sings and looks wonderful, and she cooks, and writes books, and… and… and… and I’m gushing over someone I’m barely familiar with…. Pardon me while I quietly tiptoe off to explode. ^_^;)
They’re singing about the quintessential “Swiss Army Knife” of every girl’s wardrobe, the celebrated LBD – Little Black Dress!(Even I have one! I should show you one of my pictures of me wearing it sometime! ^_-;)
