Don’t Dream It, Be It. On Saturday July 22nd the Rocky Horror Picture Show gets a Drag Queen makeover, when the queens take-over and pay homage to the 1975 classic camp film- The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The Rocky Horror Drag Queen Show is a multi-media lip-syncing-and-dancing interactive spin on everyone’s favorite rock and roll fantasy film.

The Rocky Horror Drag Queen Show stars Philadelphia’s most fabulous and fiercest drag queens lead by RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Star Mimi Imfurst, and features choreography by Krystal Mendez, whose choreography was recently seen on ABC’s remake of Dirty Dancing. The Rocky Horror Drag Queen Show will feature NYC’s award winning burlesque troupe ROX REPUBLIC lead by rising burlesque star Lola Von Rox and costumes by Bobby Fabulous Designs.

This is an all-ages event and is produced by FauxReal.co in conjunction with The Hard Rock Café Philadelphia.
