STAGE TUBE: Matt McGrath's 'Sweet Transvestite' in Old Globe ROCKY HORROR

By: Oct. 16, 2011

The Old Globe's new production of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW opened Sept. 23 in San Diego, CA. The production, scheduled to run through Nov. 6, is directed by James Vasquez, with choreography by JT Horenstein and music direction by Mike Wilkins.

The cast features Matt McGrath (Frank ‘N' Furter), Andrew Call (Eddie, Phantom), Jeanna de Waal (Janet), Sydney James Harcourt (Rocky), Nadine Isenegger (Columbia), Lauren Lim Jackson (Phantom), Kelsey Kurz (Brad), David Andrew Macdonald (Narrator, Dr. Scott), Anna Schnaitter (Phantom), Laura Shoop (Magenta), Kit Treece (Phantom) and Jason Wooten (Riff Raff).

The musical that became a movie and started a 35-year nonstop cultural phenomenon is back where it is meant to be seen - live on stage. When Brad and Janet, a clean-cut young couple from the suburbs, get caught with a flat in the middle of nowhere, they seek help from the devilishly charming transvestite Dr. Frank ‘N' Furter. What they discover in his mysterious laboratory is a time warp of sexual and scientific possibilities - and, perhaps, true love.

Tickets can be purchased online at, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE or by visiting the Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
