The Rocky Horror Show
by Richard O’Brien
Directed by David M. Jenkins, music direction by Jeremy Douglass
Jul. 10 – Aug. 4, 2024
Jaeb Theater, Straz Center
In 2014, Jobsite first took over the Jaeb Theater for a co-production of Return to the Forbidden Planet with the Straz Center. 10 summers later they take on the show they’ve been waiting for as part of their 25th Anniversary Season! Jobsite fans must know this cult-hit rock musical is a no-brainer for the company who has consistently taken home Creative Loafing Best of the Bay Awards like “Best Theater Rockers,” “Best Musical,” and “Best Local Production” for scorchers like Forbidden Planet, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Pericles, SILENCE! The Musical, LIZZIE, and others.
The antici … pation is over for Jobsite’s spin on the OG kitschy rock ‘n’ roll sci-fi gothic musical! Straightlaced Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter as they look for a phone to call for help. As their innocence (and more) is stripped away, they encounter a castle-full of wild characters while the not-so-good Dr. and his motley crew unveil his latest creation — a Charles Atlas-inspired beefcake named Rocky. Give yourself over to absolute pleasure at this iconic landmark of musical theater and — now at almost 50 years old – enduring part of popular culture.
