Photo Essay: The Rocky Horror Show at Mainline Theatre

Posted by Cindy / October 17, 2012

20121016RockyHorror(main).jpgMontrealers get an early taste of Halloween mayhem over at Mainline Theatre this week. Those of you familiar with the late night tradition of the Rocky Horror Picture Show (where you throw rice and toast at the movie screen and callback the lines) will be as excited for the stage production of Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror show.

Directed by Philippe Gobeille, what makes this Rocky Horror experience different is that it has a futuristic dark backdrop featuring live music from a five piece band (lead by bandleader and co producer Shayne Gryn). As well, an elaborate floor show featuring a large cast and glam rock phantoms dancing in all parts of the stage (audience members will have one of them haunt you next to your seat). All dance numbers are choreographed by Geneviève Lauzon, Amy Blackmore and Patrick Lloyd Brennan. It's a mix of glam rock, sexual exploration and space travel all into one. Devoted Rocky fans can still callback lines during the show and costumes are encouraged (as there was a shout out to the girl in the "cookie monster" hat in the front row during the show.)

Here are highlights from Rocky Horror at Mainline:

Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it
has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!

Other then that, amazing blog!

Admiring the commitment you put into your site
and detailed information you present. It's good to come across
a blog every once in a while that isn't the same outdated
rehashed information. Great read! I've saved your
site and I'm including your RSS feeds to my
Google account.
