Rocky Horror shadow-cast finds new home at Boston Common AMC

Local Rocky Horror fans, rejoice! The Harvard Square AMC is still closing (see "Rocky Horror shadow-cast says goodbye," July 2, 2012), but the Full Body Cast has found a new venue for their weekly Saturday midnight engagement with Dr. Frank and the gang. The FBC will be cracking a figurative bottle of champagne over their new stage at the Boston Common AMC theatre on August 4 at 12:30 AM.

"Our new theater will be a bit larger than our regular weekly theater was in Harvard Square - we will be seating about 300 in the new space," says the cast's director Alex Savitzky. Their Harvard AMC space only accommodated 180 audience members.

Emerson College students will get the most out of the new location, but non-locals may have parking concerns. "There is no doubt less immediate street parking than in Harvard Square," Satitzsky admits. "That said, there are many more parking garages near Boston Common than we had in the Square," including validated parking in the movie theater's garage, which was not an option at the Harvard AMC location.

"It will be weird not being in Harvard Square after all these years," says Savitzsky. "But technically, our cast has its roots in Boston from the old Exeter Street days, so it's almost like going home and we're very excited to have a home."
