Lots of fun. We were a little disappointed in the vocals, Riff-Raff was especially weak, but Tomas Theriot as Frank-n-Furter is a hoot, and confident enough in the role to ad-lib occasionally to good advantage. This production lacks menace, and some of the lines are not played to the best advantage, but the light-hearted quality of this production is engaging. Still too raw for the kiddies, but not as outrageous as you might expect.
i agree that Kitchens' performance is "distractingly overwrought". Otherwise, this review is mostly offbase. I enjoyed the show but I thought that Darlington seemed like a Judy Garland fanboy in the first act, and a completely different person in the second. Ross was flawless.
