On a dark and stormy night, innocent and newly engaged Brad and Janet get a flat tire on their way to visit an old professor. Instead of visiting their professor, they end up at a bizarre mansion inhabited by a transvestite mad scientist named Frank 'N' Furter. This sexy, campy, hilarious, interactive cult musical is an ironic homage to science fiction and B horror movies. The bizarre cast of characters, surprising plot twists, and memorable score have kept audiences coming back for over 35 years. The special midnight performance on Friday, October 25 is for American University students with AU ID. Only 2 tickets may be purchased with each AU Student ID.
