A triumph, in its ridiculous way

““Rocky Horror” really is kind of a triumph, in its ridiculous way, in that it feels like a re-creation of a lost property with a score which is, to my mind, and I know some differ, very much the equal of, say, “Little Shop of Horrors.” And, palpably, it’s a hit, with the (somewhat) younger audiences all theaters covet arriving in droves from Toronto and beyond, entirely ready to party.

None of this would work without bravura vocals and charm from Dan Chameroy as the sweet transvestite from transsexual wherever and, notably, from Jennifer Rider-Shaw, who gives Janet a power in delicious contrast to her usual demure persona. Add in a very muscular and funny Rocky (George Krissa) and a frenetic Columbia (Kimberly-Ann Truong) and the eye hardly knows where to look.”
