Yes, you read that right. Barry Bostwick is coming to Minneapolis!!
Barry will be a guest at Wizard World Minneapolis May 5-7, 2017. While he is in town, Wizard World has teamed up with legendary film producer Lou Adler, FOX Studios, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show Official Fan Club to produce a special one night Rocky Horror Picture Show Extravaganza with Barry hosting, Transvestite Soup performing, and a display of original props and costumes from the movie!
Transvestite Soup cast and groupie alumni should be excited to learn that this special event will be taking place at Transvestite Soup’s home from 1998 to 2008, the Riverview Theater! (Don’t worry, our regular show at the Uptown Theatre is still happening.)
There are three levels of tickets available:
- General Admission ($15): This gets you into the show and a seat. You get to be see Barry’s introduction, and see the show, and be in the Riverview, and it’ll be swell.
- Golden Circle ($35): All of the above, plus you get to sit near the front. Woo! Please note: it’s golden circle, not golden shower. THERE WILL BE NO GOLDEN SHOWERS IN THE RIVERVIEW. PERIOD.
- VIP ($89): Includes a VIP meet and greet with Barry Bostwick from 7PM-8PM prior to the screening, a Golden Circle seat, plus a photograph (with your own camera) and an autograph from Barry. So, basically, you will want this one if at all possible.
Golden Circle and VIP tickets are especially limited so we do recommend you purchase those as soon as possible on the Wizard World website.
So, What Should I do?
- Well, first thing is first. This show is going to sell out. Buy your tickets right away.
- Next, join the Facebook event, and invite your RHPS friends so they know it’s happening.
- Make repairs or upgrades to your RHPS costume so you look your best in photos because THERE WILL BE PHOTOS!
- And lastly, get some practice to make sure you bring your audience participation and callback A-game by coming to our regular show this Saturday night, April 29 at Uptown Theatre.
Anything Else I Should Know?
You do not have to attend Wizard World Minneapolis in order to go to this show. Admission to the show is a separate ticket from the convention.
If you are a VIP ticket holder, go to the VIP Meet and Greet at the convention center from 7PM-8PM. If you are a Golden Circle or General Admission ticket holder, line up for the show outside The Riverview. Doors open around 11:30PM.
We will be selling UBER PROP BAGS before the show, with extra stuff in them that is not in our normal prop bags. So… you might want one of those. Just saying. Bring money. Bring 5 dollars.
The Riverview Theater has very limited street parking, so arrive early or plan to carpool or take a cab if at all possible. If you do drive, be prepared to walk a few blocks after you park.
See You Soon, Unconventional Conventionists
Transvestite Soup will be at Wizard World in costume during the day on Saturday to promote the show, and we will also be at the VIP meet and greet with Barry, so please come say hello to us if you see us.
Otherwise, we are so excited to be participating in this special event, and can’t wait to see all your lovely faces at the show!
And buy your tickets now. Seriously. Do the thing.
