Some things never die, especially when it’s a cult classic. The Kaohsiung City Dadong Arts Center is reviving the musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show on March 13th and 14th.

Rocky Horror Picture Show Trailer

What is The Rocky Horror Picture Show? It’s the longest-running theatrical release in film history. The story is about a young engaged couple who through ill-fated events ends up meeting Dr Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite (易裝癖) scientist. The scientist who created “Rocky Horror” à la Frankenstein, the perfect male specimen and a sex symbol. What happens next you’ll have to imagine or better yet, see for yourself at the performance.

Wonderfully weird, Fabulously freaky, It’s a trip to transsexual Transylvania, The story is strange, The songs are stupid, The cast is completely crazy.

So, what made this show an international cult classic? The story was so crazy and stupid that it was wonderfully entertaining, if that makes sense. People around the world didn’t go to watch the movie…they dress up in character and went to act it out. That is a mark of a great film–a cult film–when fans are so immersed in the story that they know the script by heart and relive the moments. Also, some argue Dr Frank-N-Furter popularized the fishnet stockings.

The songs were captivating. Click here for the ranking of every soundtrack.
