Rocky Horror Puppet Show
At the grocery store last night, I ran into some people I know but haven't seen in something like a year. They were at the Boggle tournament last year, and one of them was in the finals. The one who was in the finals last year is a puppeteer. She and another puppeteer are going to start working on the Rocky Horror Puppet Show. Yes, it's exactly what it sounds like. It looks like they're going to get permission to do it, and they're also going to apply for a Henson Foundation grant. They're going to start building the puppets soon, and it should be done some time next year.

I wonder if I'll see the Rocky Horror Picture Show before I see the Rocky Horror Puppet Show.

So would it be a bad thing to mention the Rocky Horror Muppet Show that my friend Tom wrote back in 1988 or so?

Thanks, I'll pass this along to my friend.

Do you happen to know if your friend got permission from Richard O'Brien to do this?

Considering that he's never had it performed1, I somehow doubt it. But I'm not sure.

1 There was a read-through at an 1988 or 1989 sci-fi/filk convention, and when I was in college I heard the recording of it. I seem to recall that there was an exchange in the introduction where one person said "All characters copyright either Henson Associates or Twentieth Century Fox" and Tom jumped in with "Mr. Henson, Mr. O'Brien, please don't sue me!"
