“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is a cult-classic horror parody that has enthralled audiences for over 40 years. The story follows sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) who are stuck with a flat tire during a storm and discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist.
As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
Tickets to “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” are $15 in advance, $18 at the door, and they can be purchased at the BAC box office, by phone at (773) 445-3838 or online at beverlyartcenter.org.
