The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Sat., Oct. 20, 10 p.m.

Halloween calls to mind haunted houses, tricks and treats, and pumpkin spice everything. But for those sweet transvestites from Transexual, Transylvania, it means a month of The Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings. Well, folks, the antici...pation is over. The campy cultural 1975 phenomenon starring Tim Curry as Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet (dammit!) Weiss, and boyfriend Brad Majors played by Barry Bostwick broke the mold as a hypersexual sci-fi musical that has gone on to touch (oh, has it touched) the beautiful pervs and prudes of the world. Fan rituals will be in full effect, as will the resident Michigan Theater RHPS shadowcast team the Leather Medusas. $8-$10

The Rocky Horror Picture Show


Fri., Oct. 19, 8 p.m., Sat., Oct. 20, 2 & 8 p.m. and Sun., Oct. 21, 2 & 7:30 p.m.

When being convicted of murder, just give ‘em the old razzle-dazzle. Based on a play written about real-life homicide cases in the early 1920s, Chicago wasn’t adapted into musical form until 1975, and was later famously adapted to screen for the Oscar-winning film of the same name with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Renee Zellweger, and Richard Gere in 2002. Chicago follows the satirical journey of vaudevillian stage sirens Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart as they plan their glamorous escape from the gallows. As the drama unfolds, the women high-kick their way to freedom amid corruption and a whole lotta jazz. $39+

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Oct. 20-Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.
