|Volume III, Issue 9||
September 24, 1994
September is upon us, bringing with
it, cooler days, longer nights, and an
annoying little thing called school. Looking
on the dark side, as long as you're there
anyway, note that you're in a prime picking
ground for dozens of new VIRGINs, many of
which would make lovely entertainment
pieces for our Pre-Show. We're looking
forward to your future sacrifices.
As if any of you needed a reminder,
the Rocky-est night of the year is just
around the corner. We will, of course, be
having that traditional Halloween show on
Saturday, October 29th. In addition to it
conveniently falling on Lingerie Night, we'll be
having costume contests for your best (you
know what we mean) Halloween costumes.
We do suggest you arrive early for this one!
For those of you, fond of the silvery moon lofting in the heavens, we should note that our good friend, the Man in the Moon, was in particularly good form this past week. A Full Moon comes approximately once a month but according to ancient Chinese
calendars, the fullest moon of the year just
passed on Tuesday, 9/20. Till next year . . .
A couple of our cast members had a
brush with death this past weekend.
Stories entail that on the way home from
Rocky, their car swerved, hit the center
divider, did a 360, rolled and hit a brick wall.
Choose some or all of the above, what really
happened, we're still not 100% sure. Suffice
it to say, everybody survived and most have
been released from hospitals. Whether or
not this had anything to do with the full
moon we don't know, but it might help to
explain the 2 or 3 other cars who hit the
downed vehicle AFTER everyone else got out.
Ah, Darwinism at its best . . .
Thought that would get your attention . . . you've heard about it (several times) so now we'll get to it and shut up for another year. September Birthdays include Big John (Enforcer, 9/25), Bill (Brad, 9/30), and (in an official warning to the world at large), Leisa's (Columbia, 9/27) 21st birthday. We'd also like to wish a Happy Birthday to Meatloaf, who's birthday also
falls on 9/27. Pending October Birthdays
include Cecilia (Props, 10/4) and Jan
Just how many true thespians there
are in our cast is still unknown, but, a
number of past and present Midnight
Insanity cast members have been
stretching beyond Rocky Horror and the
safe confines of the Art Theatre; and are
putting on a play. William Shakespeare's
"Much Ado About Nothing" is now showing
in the Dana Point area (waaaay South
Orange County). The cast includes Kristine
(Trixie), Axel (old-Pre-Show), Dave (old-
Rocky), Victor (old-Fall Guy), Cecilia (Props)
and Jaimes (old-Dr. Scott/Videographer).
The play is now being shown at La Plaza
Park in Dana Point Plaza. Showtimes
include Sunday (tomorrow), 9/25 at 1pm as
well as next Saturday and Sunday (10/1 &
10/2), also at 1pm. This is an outdoor affair
(aaahhhh, sunlight!) and is set in a picnic-
like atmosphere. Feel free to bring food,
Hey, Nell fans, if you're gonna be in the New York area, you may want to check this one out: "You Should Be So Lucky", by Charles Busch, starring Charles Busch, Julie Halston, (Little) NELL CAMPBELL, Stephen Perlman. Runs 10/19 - 11/20 at "Primary Stages". Synopsis: "Drag diva Charles Busch has left his fabulous gowns behind for his first role in trousers. In his new work, he plays a gay electrolysist who has a
Cinderella-like knack for stumbling
upon good fortune." . . . sounds interesting!
Tim Curry has also been spotted, this time
on late-night TV in an ABC "Midnight Movie"
(does this guy do films at any other time?)
The movie is called "Times Square", set in
New York (popular place) and probably came
out around 1978 or 1979. I managed to
tape part of it but didn't get the beginning
OR the ending. Since most video stores
have long since forgotten about this flick,
anyone who can supply me with a copy would
earn my undying gratitude (and possibly a
bottle of Vodka--movie tie-in, no I'm not a
For those of you wondering just
what it's like on the moon drenched shores
of Transexual, Transylvania, we'd like to
direct you to the merchandise table where
one fan has written "The Princess and the
Mermaid", and tale about the Princess of
Transexual, and makes for VERY interesting
reading. The author, Laura, is the same
woman who has created the Vampire T-
Shirts, also available on the table.
Midnight Insanity especially thanks
The Art Theatre management and crew; the
Long Beach Police Department (really!) for
all their help; Diego, for bowling FIVE strikes
in a row and proving that you can save a
dying score, 44, to end up at 178. and last,
but certainly not least, you, our faithful,
enduring audience, just because you're all a
bunch of nuts, but we love you anyway.
