Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ satire and more set free in Green Bay

“A campus production opened Thursday night in University Theater of the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay with a bit of electricity in the air, arcing from the stage. Players sang, danced and acted in eye-catching getups like in a bizarre dark-fantasy dreamscape. Continually heard from knowing quipsters in the hall were remarks on the action and persona in the spotlight. The experience was like sitting in a vat of a bubbling froth of words sung and spoken.” See more via Warren Gerds/Critic at Large: Review: ‘The Rocky Horror Show’ satire and more set free in Green Bay.
