The iconic close-up image of a lip-biting mouth should be next to the word “campy” in the dictionary. Love it, hate it, or don’t give a fuck — everyone knows of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” It’s time to break out your worst fishnets and lipstick again, and head to The Auricle in Canton. From Oct. 20-28, Director Marci Saling’s hand-picked cast of cross-dressing, fun-loving misfits will take the stage to do the time warp … again. Has it been overdone? Is that even possible for a show like this, with platinum-level cult classic status? It is difficult to reincarnate “Rocky Horror” in a fresh way without alienating the hardcore fans; fortunately, The Auricle as a venue provides a built-in twist on the show. Saling said, “Ever had a drink in your hand, been able to pelt rice as part of a show within feet of the actors, and feel the beat of the percussion from anywhere in the theater? That is what you get at the Auricle – a super cool underground bar that doubles as an intimate theatrical venue that just rocks. Does it add staging issues? Sure. But I’ll take them. If we need the room we’ll just have the cast dance in the audience. Yep … we’ll do that.” Saling’s enthusiasm must be contagious, because she and music director Brenton Cochran are beyond ecstatic with the cast, which Saling described as a group of ‘silly, uninhibited, and wild, fantastic performers’ — a crucial dynamic for such an unapologetically raunchy show. Kelly Tanner, Stephen Carpenter, Sarah Jane Toy, and Brett Parr lead the cast and audience members through all their favorite numbers with effervescence and a sense of humor and camaraderie. In directing this rendition, Saling put a lot of thought into balancing the tradition of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” with the desire to make it unique. She explained, “A show like “Rocky Horror,” that has had serious followers longer than I’ve been alive – you have to please them first, with sprinklings of extra pizazz. You can’t have a cult classic without the classic … or the cult.” Tickets run $15-20, and are available by calling the Playhouse Box Office at 330.494.1613.
