REVIEW: THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW BY DC METRO THEATRE ARTS
DC Metro Theatre Arts reviews The Rocky Horror Show - “a visual feast” and “pure fun embracing differences and celebrating sexuality.”

“It’s hard to imagine a more thoroughly enjoyable theatrical experience, pure fun embracing differences and celebrating sexuality. The only bad thing about the Iron Crow production is that it is over too soon – all five performances were packed into this weekend. If you were able to see it, you had a good time. If you weren’t able to, make a note on your 2019 calendar to get tickets for next year’s version. Don’t dream it, see it.”
