Two tickets for a preview of "The Rocky Horror Show" at The Belasco Theatre held March 7, 1975. Tickets are complete with stubs.
"The Rocky Horror Show" is kind of mixture between a horror and science fiction movies, a rock show and a transvestite display. So you see there should be something for everybody to like. Or dislike if it comes to that...
The idea of Frankenstein as a bisexual transvestite, with a baritone voice, fish-net tights and black lipstick, way also perversely attractive. One forgave the mush that was bright but not especially original—hard-rock—candy, bubble—gum and popcorn—and the performances that were camp and dreadful. The style provided the enjoyment.
Now the style is partly lacking. Time Curry as Frank 'n' Furter can be very funny, flashing his eyes like headlamps, tossing his curls roguishly and talking in a voice of sugared bile. He can also sing, and puts over his numbers with the venomous zest of a David Bowie..." — Clive Barnes, "Stage: A Flashy 'Rocky Horror Show,'" The New York Times, March 11, 1975
