‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ : Flint Set to Do the Time Warp Again
Let's do the time warp again... at the Captiol Theatre
Ahhhh there is nothing, and I mean nothing, quite like the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Especially during the haunting Halloween season, it is pure genius even all these years since its 1975 premiere.
The film not only pushed the envelope with its story line and flamboyant style, but it gave many of its stars an instant place in iconic film history. Actor Tim Curry, who would go on to eventually scar the hell out of us as Pennywise in the original It, secured his fame name with his portrayal of Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Rocker Meatloaf even had a role in the cult favorite film, but who could forget the naive and nerdy couple that came knocking on the door one rainy night?
The couple in for one unforgettable night, were played by young actors Susan Sarandon ( as Janet Weiss), and Barry Bostwick as the sweet, but clueless Brad Majors. Both went on to stellar careers to say the least, with Bostwick appearing in films and television with notable rolls such as Mayor Randall Winston in the sitcom Spin City (1996–2002). and even winning a Tony Award for his role in The Robber Bridegroom. Still....Brad is that roll that will live on forever.
