When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Wed., Oct. 26, 8 p.m. Continues through Oct. 29 2016
The Rocky Horror Show is that rare cult classic musical that deserves to be called "iconic" — it's so big, a live production of it will be broadcast on Fox later this month. Does that mean middle America is finally comfortable with Dr. Frank N. Furter? Perhaps, but nothing can replace the thrill of seeing the good doctor in the flesh — and that's where Stray Dog Theatre comes in. The company opens its new season with Richard O'Brien's Rocky Horror Show, one of the greatest live experiences you can have on this planet. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday (October 13 to 29) at the Tower Grove Abbey (2336 Tennessee Avenue; www.straydogtheatre.org). There is one additional performance at 8 p.m. Wednesday, October 26. Tickets are $20 to $25.
