So, with me working with so many different casts over the years, to say, That Repo:Genetic Opera is here forever!!!! It is saying a lot!
Also, to have transitioned my 3 kids age ranging 16, 14, 9 (all of them are damn close to their next bday) from being Rocky fans to die hard Repofreaks! I'd say I am doing my part! LOL
Okay seriously, I wish you were my mom. Or my big sister at least. hahahah! I am totally jealous of your ausome life of championing epic musicals! And rock operas of course:)
I was a late bloomer on the Rocky Horror front, watching it that is. Weirdly enough, the actual soundtrack was one of the first cds I ever listened to. When my parents first bought a cd player, right when the players were starting to become something that people were buying for their homes, they got a really random array of stuff to play. Being as I was young and there were no kids inspired tunes, I grabbed up the few that had the coolest colored artwork on them and sure enough RH was at the top LOL
Repo though, is another story. I heard about it long before they were done making it and was ravenous to see. They actually shot it in Toronto where I live, which is AUSOME! They premiered in in Quebec for the Canadian Release but soon after we had the Toronto release at the big horror movie festival here and it was AMAZING! We got to chat to Terrence that night and he came to hang out in a pub afterwards with alot of the audience & the costume designer, sf/x artist, various smaller cast members, etc did a q & a. It was brilliant! They also did the wide theatre release here so they had special events every night with q&a's, props (the pavi masks and blind mag's cloak) and a zydrate bar. God, I love this city!
The shadow cast does indeed switch gender roles, though I think a few of the roles are static. The Repo Man last night was a woman, as well as Rotti! It was extremely clever and amusing, I'm insanely impressed with them. Yay! I can't wait to do this swap...
The Genterns are two of the most ausome girls who have made the shadow cast the amazingness that it is (I'm Amber lol):
