I figured Joanna would want to know about this. I actually got to perform once as Riff Raff here a long long time ago. They had the most hostile audience I've ever seen at a Rocky Horror theater. A majority of audience members seemed actively annoyed that there was a cast at all. Bizarre.

Fans of Billy Joe's not ready to say goodbye

Wow,that's too bad... I enjoyed that night, what with all the high from Ruth and Wally's wedding, and they had good nachos for Iowa. I thought the audience was just indifferent (but after playing in Corpus with people throwing beer, eggs, tomatoes, and lit firecrackers at us and screeching homophobic insults and death threats, back in the late 70s, my definition of a bad audience is a bit narrower, no doubt!) I'm sure the regulars will miss it a lot. Thanks for letting me know... Another theater on my list i'll have to put an asterisk (for "now defunct") next to...
