|Volume VI, Issue 7||
July 26, 1997
Okay, we got a real pressure cooker
goin' here, lots of kids, not much for clothes,
and lots of stuff to throw. Did we mention
there was also a Sweet Transvestite
involved? Well, you virgins will find *that*
out, soon enough. For the moment, welcome
once again to The Rocky Horror Picture
Show here at the Art Theatre in Long
Beach. We're your cast, Midnight Insanity,
and we will be doing unspeakable things to
you this evening (much like any other
evening). Dontcha just love mild summers?
For those of you who consistently get up
past 2pm, the mornings have been
delightfully overcast, which keeps the evil
sun from frying the bejeezus out of
everything, yet at the same time,
maintaining these lovely comfortable
evenings for such things like (surprise,
surprise!), Lingerie Nights!!! Yes, it's that
time again, Midnight Insanity invites YOU to
climb up on stage and flaunt your stuff in
your nighttime skivvies. Be sure to bring
something a little less comfortable to wear
in line, so that we don't scare the "normal"
people out on the streets. :-)
Ahhh, the night you've all been waiting for. In seven little days, we'll be
having a Special Show, made up of average,
everyday Rocky weirdoes who have a strong
desire to attack the stage for the first
time. We take you back to the early days of
Rocky, when few really knew what they were
doing, and even fewer had full costumes.
Why come watch a bunch of people knock
heads on stage? Well, given that this is our
THIRD Rookie night, many of you audience
members have come to antici...pate, this
particular show, and have prepared properly.
Thus, you'll see some really amazing
performances from folks who've had only a
week or so to plan for this sort of thing.
Know also that we have a real habit of
picking up new cast members from these
shows. In particular, we scooped up Diego
from our very first Rookie night.
So ... does anybody remember waaaay back when we had our International Correspondent, Victor D. Infanté? Yes, Victor was out in England, going to school, and thus began our "World Famous" status. Nowadays, the numbers are growing. Both Jaimee and Amanda have recently taken off for England (and other sundry parts of Europe), though I believe they are back now. Tonight we welcome back Shiera, who has spent damn close to a year overseas in various parts of Europe (though mostly in
France). Last week we bade goodbye to
Desiree, who is leaving for Germany, again
for a freakin' year. :-( And, soon enough,
Jan and Mariah will be taking off for Italy,
though they'll be back in December. So like,
what IS it about our show that makes
people want to flee the country? Oh well, if
you *do* decide to head out of the country,
be sure and see Rocky, wherever you go, and
report back to us!!!
So guess what, Tim Curry's new
sitcom, "Over the Top" has now been moved
to the 9:591pm slot on Tuesday nights (in
the fall, of course), and tapings for these
shows will begin very shortly. If you're
interested in seeing a live taping of the
show, and you're over 16, come see me (Bill).
In addition to the usual Tim report, we are
also told that Susan Sarandon will be in a
new movie called "Stepmom", with Julia
Roberts. The film is scheduled to begin
shooting in September, but we've no idea
when it'll actually be out...
Yes, Midnight Insanity jumps *another* hurdle, to make your net-surfing life that much easier. Instead of the old address, you can now reach Midnight Insanity's newly revamped website at:
Some parts of the site are still under construction, so be sure to wear a hard ... hat, while you surf! Convention photos are up, and other cool stuff should be coming real soon.
Hey, it could be worse, we could be
talking about that Christmas-in-July
crapola that all the retail stores try to
push on people in the middle of summer.
However, we have something *far* more
important to talk about. Your cast,
Midnight Insanity, is turning 10 years old!!!
That's right, our 10th Birthday celebration
will be in January of 1998. We can't tell you
what's going to happen, mainly because we
haven't really figured that out yet. However,
we *can* tell you that it will be an incredibly
huge show, and a night of intense
entertainment, and we just wanted you to
pencil us in now. I mean, it's not everyday
you get to celebrate 10 years of Rocky
Horror decadence, now is it???
Unfortunately, the days of darkness
have returned. Due to the behavior of
various after-the-show guests, the
Shorehouse Café will only be seating cast
members. Sorry folks, it only takes one or
two to screw it up for everybody else.
Midnight insanity would like to thank the Art Theatre Management and crew, for allowing us to perform here *every fucking week*; the Management and crew of the Woodland Hills theatre (Topanga), same reason; Denny's and Shorehouse Café, for putting up with us; and, of course, you, our loving and faithful audience, who come to see us, *every fucking week*!!!
