There’s a light, over at the … Sesame Place? Director Amanda Sylvester, Sean Glass and Gloaming Productions — the minds who brought you this summer’s Hungry: the Musical, about an invasion of flesh-eating alien plants — have put a new spin on Richard O’Brien’s campy cult classic. Taking inspiration from sources like Siouxsie Sioux and Man Ray, this production of Rocky Horror is a darker, new-wave adaptation of the original, with 100 percent more puppets. See Frank and company like never before in what promises to be one of a select few live performances of Rocky Horror featuring titillating human-on-puppet action this Halloween season.
