Ben Brantley of the New York Times called this “One of the last of the great plays by Tennessee Williams that mapped the terrible limbo of human loneliness." Reverend T. Lawrence Shannon, a defrocked Episcopal minister leads a busload of Baptist women on a tour of Mexico. At the end of his emotional rope, he seeks refuge in a ramshackle resort. Shannon, Maxine, Hannah and a group of female Baptist college tourists populate this engrossing story of dying dreams, frustrated sexuality, and lost-souls shaped and changed by the turgid, tropical heat that surrounds them.

The Rocky Horror Show is a campy, humorous tribute to science fiction and horror movies of the past.
