One of the greatest parody films of all time gets transformed into a Rocky Horror-esque type of fun stage show. Most of the classic scenes and lines are there and you are encouraged to shout out the lines you know and love (along with lines from other movies you might know).

In addition, the changes made to place this production into modern-day were heavy-handed and didn’t work with the parts that weren’t updated. Read my full review here - full review
