Karaoke! Love 'em, they tried!
I loved the Rocky Horror Picture Show the first time I ever saw it, and that fact hasn't changed all these years! Richard O'Brien's brilliant story has so many different characters and genres, it's almost impossible NOT to find something in the movie to which one can relate. It was great seeing Richard, Nell Campbell, and Patricia Quinn together again.
Eric McCormack and Jesse Martin were PHENOMENAL. McCormack's Frank N. Furter was the closest to Tim Curry's as I have ever seen, and even his blocking was perfection. A big round of applause to him. Jesse Martin has a beautiful voice and was a real pleasure to watch (as if he wasn't already). I'm not going to mention the other performers but to say, "Good for them for being part of this 25th anniversary celebration of this wonderful movie." Would I have been happier if all the stars had the singing ability McCormack and Martin are blessed with? You bet, but we can't have everything. Besides, it WAS karaoke after all, and the rule for karaoke is that someone somewhere (if not most) is going to be awful, but who cares? They're having fun, and we're playing along. Sit back and enjoy this one. The storyline is very abbreviated, but if you're watching this show, chances are you've seen the movie and already know what's going on.
May The Rocky Horror Picture Show live on to infinity! Let's do the Time Warp AGAIN and AGAIN...
