Sweet Transvestite...the sweetest of them all...

In a previous Meme I mentioned that I had seen the Rocky Horror Show live on stage 44 times, almost all at Melbourne's Comedy Theatre...have seen three actors play Frank-N-Furter but Daniel Abineri was outstanding...an amazing voice and oh so camp, he was Frank to perfection. I believe he played the role for several seasons, that's many hundreds of performances. I was lucky enough to be at his final Frank gig in around 1989...it was brilliant, many tears shed.I'm told Reg Livermore did an equally brilliant job in the 1970's but sadly I was a little young, I'd have loved to see him as Frank.

While up online in the middle of the night last night I found this...it has been illegally videotaped by an audience member so there are a few blips in it. It brought many smiles and some great memories...



Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and comments on yesterday's post, having a much better day today...had a crappy night's sleep but went back to bed for a nap this morning and feel as though the pain is under control today, have just managed to do some supermarket shopping and have put it away. If nothing else gets done today the day hasn't been a total loss. Am looking forward so much to having the surgery done next Tuesday.

Wow, he was good! So with the movie, the only version I've ever seen, we yell back stuff, do you do that in a live show too? We do have people in costume doing the entire thing in front of the screen too. Rocky Horror is big here in Denton, as it's not only a college town, but "Welcome to Denton, Homes of Happiness!" (that was a sign in the movie, was it in the show?). We actually used to have a sign like that on the city limits but the old crowd took it down :(.

I'm sorry the pain is so awful. I remember those long painful nights when pg with Ana. It's just miserable. I'm glad you were able to get a nap finally. ((((hugs)))) and prayers as you make it to the surgery.

I could watch the vid (maybe just a little bit innapropriate for work!) but wanted to say I am glad you are having a better day today.
