The Rocky Horror Show at Scottsdale Desert Stages -- The Time Warp Again, Again

The setup: Many people who are or were cool enough to enjoy midnight showings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (in continuous release longer than any other motion picture) don't know that it started out as an extremely popular stage musical in London. In the Valley alone, I've seen productions of it from three different theater companies over the years.

Desert Stages Theatre takes a jump to the left with their current run of The Rocky Horror Show, which has one weekend left.
