Rocky Horror

My wife, Deanna, and I were checking out the annual Greek Festival near our apartment in Baltimore on Sunday and stumbled on a poster for the Theater Project's Rocky Horror Picture Show. We were intrigued since neither of us had seen it on stage before. We went up to the box office and lo and behold they were having their final performance of the run in about 45 minutes. So we had a fun spur of the moment night out. The show was great. It was nice to see that even in the context of Rocky Horror there was still room for Baltimore to make it even more kitschy. It was my first Theater Project show, and I was really impressed. The costumes were a really nice departure from the iconic look of the characters. The stage was very minimal, but they did a lot to create scenery in your mind's eye. I'm sure we will return for more shows. One of the highlights was the poster created by David Plunkert of Spur Design. He has been creating Theater Project's posters for years now and they have many of them are on display in the theater's lobby.
