About the show:

The Rocky Horror Show is a musical with music, lyrics and book by Richard O'Brien. A humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through to the early 1970s, the musical tells the story of a newly engaged couple getting caught in a storm and coming to the home of a mad transvestite scientist unveiling his new creation, a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named Rocky Horror, complete "with blond hair and a tan."

I always thought the original stage productions (and definitely the movie) were WAY over-rated, although it must have been quite different and ground-breaking for its time so I'll give it that much. Raunchy, interactive theater portraying transsexuals was something totally new back then. But I can't see how it possibly holds up 40 years later. Guys wearing dresses aren't shocking or interesting to anyone anymore. Then again, such things may be new to Cambodians, so who knows? It would be interesting to see how many locals will attend the shows. I'm guessing not many.

I must have seen a performance when I was about 15. I thought it was amazing! The only other play I'd been to before that was probably To Kill a Mocking Bird, which was pretty lame in comparison. Shit, also saw some compilation of Edgar Allan Poe's scary stories, which was probably my favorite.

I think the most memorable part of Rocky Horror Picture Show was the interaction from the audience. When I went I knew NOTHING about it and was just shocked by how everyone interacted, saying and throwing shit.

Thinking back, I guess I went to several other plays, but they were mostly pretty boring. Not really my thing I guess.

Thinking back, I guess I'm just a sweet transvestite, from Transsexual Transylvania.

Haha, that's fucked up! I was clearly dragged there by my family.

I think that only play I've ever seen on my own accord was that Blue Man Group on Broadway in NYC. Hell, even that wasn't my own idea. Fucking hipster friends. We even snuck into the wax museum and went through the whole thing backwards.

Didn't see any men in dresses when i went to Rocky Horror last year. The music is great but the stage props were mediocre. There hasn't been another musical like it so it remains a cult following.
Titanic sucked as far as props go but the acting was brilliant, when the ship was sinking they just lowered one side of a swing stage/gantry, WTF.
The worst I've seen was the Micheal Jackson musical, A girlfriend took me there by the way!
The all time cracker for me was Miss Saigon, fu%king brilliant, then again i was on some pretty good drugs :D
That's about as cultural as i get otherwise I'm a complete yobbo.
I still get asked to sing sweet transvestite at the local karaoke, hehe
