Are You a Rocky Horror Virgin? Andrew Altman Tells You What To Expect This Weekend

For nearly forty years, the Rocky Horror Picture Show has been A popular cult classic. Originally performed as a musical and later adapted into a B-movie, midnight showings of the sexual comedy began in theaters in the '70s and continue in some cities today. With audience participation and the opportunity to go out in public wearing fishnets and a corset, these showings are even more popular around Halloween.

Denver is one of thirty cities in the country that has never stopped showing the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and audiences can catch four screenings of the Halloween production this October. Colorado Elusive Ingredient, a shadow production company that re-enacts the film while it plays on the big screen, will be performing at the Boulder Theater on Friday, October 17 at 8 p.m. and midnight on October 24, 25 and 31 at the Esquire Theater. For information about any of the upcoming Colorado Elusive Ingredient shows or to purchase tickets, visit the Rocky Horror Denver website.

Westword recently caught up with Andrew Altman, cast manager of Colorado's Elusive Ingredient, to reminisce about the early days of Rocky Horror, the virgin revival of the show and the upcoming showings.
