But O'Horgan seemed interested in touchy-feely stuff too--didn't he make the members at an audition or rehearsal lick honey off of each other? Anyway, I believe someone explained on here that they actually were meant to be insects or something--like a society of insects if they had become more civilized like humans--which would explain the look, the crawling around, JCS' chrysalis type robe, etc. Of course the British version (and Australian?) was more simple , despite being directed by Rocky Horror's Jim Sharman, and was a much bigger success running for years... (Sharman had previously directed the original Australian Hair.)
