Join Iron Crow Theatre for the quintessential queer theatrical experience and what is sure to become a Baltimore tradition in this cult classic film turned live stage musical, The Rocky Horror Show! Sweethearts Brad and Janet, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, seek shelter at a mysterious old castle on a dark and stormy night, where they encounter transvestite scientist Dr. Frank N Furter. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker and a creepy butler. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named "Rocky." Complete with call-outs, cascading toilet paper and an array of other audience participation props, this deliberately kitschy rock 'n' roll sci-fi gothic thriller is more fun than ever!

WINNER // Best Direction of a Musical in Professional Theatres - Sean Elias
"I can confidently say, without hesitation, that I have never had as much fun seeing this material as I did seeing Iron Crow Theatre’s version." - David Gerson, DC Metro Theatre Arts
"...a bizarrely beautiful and beautifully bizarre evening with some of the most well-loved spooky scenes from the musical theatre canon...definitely a lot of fun that you won’t want to miss." - Amanda Gunther, TheatreBloom
"Elias’ work is clever and swift. To reveal more would ruin the many surprises that are in store. It’s familiar enough that fans will have a ball. And for the newbies, don’t worry. It won’t hurt a bit…unless you’re in to that sort of thing." - David Gerson, DC Metro Theatre Arts
"A socko wacko weirdo rock concert." - WNBC TV
"A musical that deals with mutating identity and time warps becomes one of the most mutated, time warped phenomena in show business." - The New York Times
One of the "10 most influential postwar British plays" - Guardian UK
