Remember how The Rocky Horror Picture Show couldn't even be shown on TV for years? These days, it's practically mainstream. UNC Pauper Players' production of the original stage version, The Rocky Horror Show, isn't even the first local stage take this year. Has the idea of that sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania, become more powerful than the actual story, which even hard-core fans admit makes no sense? It's still a strange, powerful communal experience, as the recent film of The Perks of Being a Wallflower communicated. The show begins at 11:59 p.m.; tickets are $10 in advance, $12 day of show, with discounts for ArtsCenter Friends, students and seniors. —Zack Smith
