We took public transit. Moderate walk from the U Street station, great for a nice day.

Description

Book, music, and lyrics by Richard O’Brien

Directed by Keith Alan Baker and Alan Paul

Two naïve lovers, Brad and Janet, seek shelter from a thunderstorm in an old castle and find themselves thrust into the laboratory of pansexual, cross-dressing mad scientist Dr. Frank N. Furter and his cadre of madcap minions. Stripped of their inhibitions — and their clothes — Brad and Janet embark on a wild, unforgettable odyssey of carnal pleasures and self-discovery. Reality, fiction, and camp collide in this mash up of comics, rock and roll and late-night horror flicks. 

Pictured above (left to right) are performers Jessica Thorne, Mitchell Jarvis and Tim Rogan.
