    OMG I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THIS!!!! I LOVE BILLY IDOL! If you haven’t seen him live in concert recently he looks fantastic! Also for any Jeaniene Frost fans of Cat and Bones, Billy Idol was part of her inspiration for the development of the Bones character! If you watch this live concert of him from this past summer you can see Bones in him (the trench coat, the mannerism and the magnetism and everything else that oozes from him :p).

    Would love to go to this event to help out the charity but also to see Billy!

      Hi Adore Bill! Great to hear from you!

      I am also a Billy Idol fan! Thanks for the clip and yes, I can see the resemblance!

      If I had the leave and the money, I would love to see this production! Maybe after the Charity event, it may be open for the public! It is a bit cruel just to have it on for those who can afford the $1000.

      Keeping fingers crossed!

    I love Rocky Horror!!! What a cast! Wish I was in LA for this!

    Thanks Sarah.

    • I looked up the prices for tickets, and OMG the cheapest one is $1,000!

      I’m not sure how many people can afford that or more for the better seats! (But it would be SO cool to get to go to that!)

      • lizzie1701

        Well, it is for Charity, but wait a little bit longer as they may release bleacher seats for much less! I hope so for your sake, Isis! That show would be a hoot to see!

        • Lizzie, I think part of the reason they’re so expensive is that there’s a party along with the show. *hums ‘If I Were A Rich Man’* Yeah, I can only dream of affording to go to that. 🙁

  • Oh cool. I know for a fact she can sing.
