August 29, 1998
Been enjoyin' the lazy days of
summer? Best do it while you can, as
August is quickly coming to a close... Of
course, you know what that means, right??
Lingerie Night!! Yes, it's time again for
Midnight Insanity's traditional dress-up-in-
show!! Will Jessica take home the trophy
three months in a row?? It's up to YOU to
give her some competition, so mount the
stage and strut your stuff!!
So, if half-naked people running
around isn't your idea of fun, well, you should
really seek help. :-) But seriously, perhaps
you should have been by last weekend when
we had the first Midnight Insanity "Alien
Night", complete with Klingons, green-
skinned women, aliens with eyes on their
toes, aliens with light-bulbs on their heads;
and even some well dressed illegal aliens, like
"Ed-a-la-hara", the gal in the traditional
Chinese dress, and Bob, who looked enough
like our favorite Pre-Show Canadian that it
made his own girlfriend do a double-take!! It
was definitely a fun night, but if you missed
it, there's always...
Bring out your perverts!! Next month, Midnight Insanity presents "Sexual Fetish Night" . on September 12th (that's two Saturday's from now). How do you do Sexual Fetish Night?? Well, first, find a way to, ummm, legally (you know, like in public)
represent your favorite sexual fetishes and
then bring whatever accessories (including
slaves) down to the show to hang out with
the rest of us sexual degenerates. We'll be
waiting for you...
Yup, it's only about six weeks away, the next Rocky Horror Convention is about to take place in the City of Sin itself: Las Vegas, Nevada!! Midnight Insanity will most *definitely* be crossing the boarder and taking this convention by storm, entering costume contests, putting on special performances, and participating in the movie performance. We've even submitted some photos for the "Denton High Year Book". The convention will be a weekend to remember, and given that it's not terribly far from here, we strongly encourage you to go. Besides, with us gone, you won't have anything to do here on Saturday night anyway. :-) The weekend of the convention is October 9th and 10th, so mark it on your calendar!! For additional information, you should call Megan Tabor at 702-434-8361. For information about the hotel (the Four Queens), call 1-800-634-6045. Rumor has it that the $51-a-night special room rate has filled up, but that may change, so call Megan for final details. Also being suggested is the "Binion's Horseshoe", which is located across the sidewalk from the Four Queens and has cheaper rates . call 1-800-937-6537 for more details. Oh, and one last thing, if you care to join us as a cast member, we're still looking for a few talented people ... see the cast after the show!!!
Ever been in fog so damned thick
that you could barely see in front of your
face? Ever been in fog that basically stuck
around forever and you had to feel around
with your hands just to find the cheesy-
poofs? Yeah, well, that was a lot like the
atmosphere at a recent party thrown at
Indy's house. Fog machines, black lights,
lightning wheels, Weight Gain 4000, a
couple of tents, and a hole in the backyard
that nobody really knew just how deep it
was. What was the reason for yet-another-
party? Well, this one was a birthday party
for Ed, Midnight Insanity regular and
currently reigning "Truffle Shuffle" World
Champion. Indy should also get an award
for some of the coolest invitations. :-)
So like, what does VOLTRON have to
do with the Rocky Horror Picture Show??
I'm glad you asked!! Word on the wire is that
Sweet Transvestite, "Tim Curry" is lending
his voice to "Voltron: The Third Dimension".
Tim will be providing the voice for "Lotor", the
villain (of course!!) Lotor is described as the
"most dangerous inmate" at Bastille-12, the
highest security lock-up. "Voltron: The Third
Dimension" will premiere on Saturday,
September 19th, at 11am on Channel 11
(FOX/KTTV). If you happen to be up that
early on a Saturday morning, you can get
your Tim-fix before coming down to our show,
later that evening. :-)
Now, the "other" God of Rocky Horror, "Richard O'Brien" (aka the sexiest bald man in the world), also has his hand in a few projects. If you haven't seen it, "Ever After", the new Cinderella movie is simply excellent, and in addition to featuring the exquisite Drew Barrymore, it also stars our own Richard O'Brien as the evil "Pierre Le
Pieu". Although Richard "owns" Drew for
part of the movie, "Ever After" is a PG-13
flick, so we never get to see anything truly
interesting happen between them. :-( Ah
well, in case you're interested, Richard also
starred in "Spice World" as, who else?
"Damien". Now if you've been reading the
headlines, you know two Spice Girls are now
pregnant. Coincidence?? Make you wonder,
For those of you who simply insist on
staying out until the sun comes up, the
cast *does* go to the Shorehouse Café,
after the show. If you care to join us there,
we ask that you request a table on the left-
side of the restaurant, as the cast room is
now limited to cast only. Sorry `bout that
but we're a poor bunch and simply can't
cover the skipped checks left by some of
your lesser life forms. Admittance into the
cast room is cool, as soon as our bill is paid.
See "Bob" as she is Queen of that domain.
In case you've been clamoring for a
copy of Rocky Horror on video, we've learned
that 20th Century Fox will be re-releasing
the video on September 25th. This new
version will include previously removed
outtakes such as "Superheroes" (which you
see every week here in the theatre), and
Brad's deleted scene, "Once in a While".
Midnight Insanity would like to thank the Art Theatre Management and crew, for allowing us to perform here *every fucking week*; the Shorehouse Café, for feeding after the show; Indy, for throwing the "Ed's Birthday" party; and, of course, all of you, our loving and faithful audience, who come back to see us again and again (and again), *every fucking week*!!!
