“Rocky Horror Show” tells the tale of Brad Majors and his fiancé, Janet Weiss. Two young, ordinary, healthy kids who find themselves stranded with a flat tire. Upon knocking on a nearby castle for help, they are swept into chaos by Franknfurter, a mad transvestite scientist, and his bizarre followers. This campy classic – a tribute to the age of B-horror movies – boasts a cult following that spans over four decades and features rock n’ roll classics such as “Sweet Transvestite,” “Hot Patootie,” and the world famous “Time Warp.”
