The Warehouse Theatre launched its 42nd season Friday night, and it’s only fitting that the company would choose the wildly-popular 42-year-old The Rocky Horror Show to mark this occasion with a slickly staged and high-octane production.

This is the third outing — after sold-out runs in 2010 and 2012 — for this Richard K. O’Brien science-fiction rock musical about a stranded young couple and their encounter with that “Sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.” And with 32 performances scheduled, The Warehouse’s Rocky Horror will set a new record as the longest-running show ever staged in Greenville.

Director Richard St. Peter, a Clemson University professor, has completely re-invented the wheel for this incarnation and set the musical in a 1970s night club designed by the amazing Will Lowry. His impressive two-story set features a catwalk and cabaret seating, lamé stage curtains and multiple points of entry including a staircase, trap door, ladder and a fire (or stripper) pole, which provides some of the show’s more memorable and entertaining entrances.
