UNC_Samurai: I went more than a few times in college (my roommate was Rocky in the cast). The Rialto let you get away with just about anything. JUST about.The only callback the production manager ever got upset about was one night during Frank's "Dream it":Whatever happened to Faye Wray? That delicate, satin draped frame. As it clung to her thigh.LIKE A HOMESICK ABORTION!How I started to cry...YOU'D CRY TOO IF YOU HAD A HOMESICK ABORTION STUCK TO YOUR LEG!
The Muthaship: Now overreact, Riff!

karnal: Lost my virginity in the back row of the local Bijou Theatre to the Floor Show scene./Woo!
abfalter: So here is my Rocky Horror story.I already knew all of the songs before I ever went to the show because my mom (a child of the 60's and let's just leave it at that) had the albumn and I would play it a lot when I was a teenager. She would not take me to actually see the movie so when I turned 18 I decided to go see it one night.I called my buddy, one of the nerdiest kids I know --who actually wore those thick black glasses --and asked him what he was doing at midnight. He said nothing, and so I said "We're going to a movie. I'll pick you up". So we went. He had no idea what movie we were going to see.This was in the Prudential Town Center outside of Detroit about 25-30 years ago. They had a pretty active crowd. Tons of rice and such being thrown around, the whole nine yards. A good show, unlike some of the tamer ones I have been to since.So we watched the movie and my friend had never seen anything like it before in his life. We had a blast and hung out after the show at a White Castles (which became a post show tradition) since it was the only thing open.We ended up going over 100 times after that.Somewhere around the 20th time my mom brought me home a pair of tiny gold lame' shorts that she found in a thrift shop. I bought some used hightop shoes and spraypainted them gold. The theater said you had to wear a shirt, but an ACE bandage was good enough for them and so I started showing up dressed as Rocky. (I had enough of a body at that point to pull off Rocky. Today, not so much....)We went every Friday and Saturday night as regulars, bringing along an even increasing amount of friends. I even managed to find a "groupie" my friend nicknamed "plastic fark doll" who could do some amazing things. The time she handcuffed me to a steering wheel in a church parking lot at 3:00am is a different story...One day a friend bought an entire shopping bag of rice, opened it up in the front row, and declared war on the audience before the movie had ...
