Theater

The Rocky Horror Show

New York, NY

Not seen in New York for some 25 years, the cult-classic The Rocky Horror Show was ready for a stage revival. David Rockwell’s theatrical design harnesses the campy, carnival-esque energy of the production while capturing and updating the strong influences of 1950’s horror and sci-fi B-movies. The experience started at the entrance to the theater, where red fabric and mannequins festooned the lobby. A movie theater within a theater was just beyond, building a distorted fantasy where movie seats literally flipped upside down and disappeared. Limited sight lines within the small space created an opportunity to bring the audience closer to the show with sets that transform and prosceniums that disappear as the story unfolded.
