Hello Gentle Readers!
It’s been a while since my last blog post. A lot has happened since I came to the States. School has started, I finally got my social security card so I’ve started working recently and I went on numerous activities. In my blog I rather talk about the activities because let’s be honest, who wants to read about school and work stuff (sorry mom and dad).
In this week’s blog I’m going to write about a show that has been on my bucket list since I was 12 years old and I can now finally cross off my list. The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Enjoy! (Or not)
The Rocky Horror Picture Show
The first thing I have to mention before I begin writing about the show is that I have to keep this blog PG-13. This means I can’t go into full detail about the things happening in the show since 90% is about the ‘special hugs’ parents give each other to create babies. I’m just saying this because, let’s be real, this is the USA and I might get sued if I talk about ‘inappropriate’ things (wink).
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is originally a 1975 musical comedy film. For people who have seen the movie, you know that this movie is actually a really bad movie but it’s a classic. Nowadays they still show the movie in selected theaters but with a twist. Actors are acting out the scenes in front of the screen and encourage the audience to participate in various ways.
I went to the Blue Mouse theatre in Tacoma. When we stood in line, a girl from the show came outside and painted a ‘V’ on the faces of people who were there for the first time. (We all know what V stands for when it comes to first timers yes? No? Okay google it.) To be honest I didn’t do it because I had heard what they had planned for those first timers and frankly I was too scared to do it. I can’t tell you what because as I have mentioned I have to keep this blog PG-13.
Before the show began a guy explained all the rules, including different insults we had to shout when particular names came up during the movie. During the movie itself we had to throw things like rice and toast and we had to sing-a-long to the songs if we knew the lyrics. They ended the show with giving ‘special dances’ to a couple of audience members who had bid on them before the show. It was hilarious. The show self was amazing. It was funny and everything I imagined it to be since I had this on my bucket list. The actors did an amazing job, especially the guy who played Tim Curry’s role as Dr. Frank N Furter. I had a really good time and I’m definitely going to more shows.
I hope you guys enjoyed this blog post and if you have dying questions about the content of the show I’ll be more than happy to answer your questions through email, Facebook, basically anywhere but this blog (another wink).
