POP QUIZ: LET’S DO THE TIME WARP AGAIN
(If you’re checking out a Trivialitycheck.com ‘Pop Quiz’ for the first time: Every Wednesday (or most, anyway) I post ten trivia questions, usually on some kind of theme. If you respond with answers or guesses, I’ll tell you your score. Send your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of this post as the subject line. The full set of answers is posted the following week, along with congratulations to the high scorer(s). No googling!)
Are you tired of putting forth your best effort, only to find the Dee Dee T won the weekly trivia contest AGAIN? Well, take heart faithful quizzer, because I guarantee you, Dee Dee won’t win this one. Now is your chance!
The reason I can be so sure is that Dee Dee herself WROTE this quiz! Hooray! Big thanks for your contribution, Dee Dee. She’s a big fan of a certain cult flick, and offered to put together a quiz entirely based around that one film. Similar to my “Star Trek Trivia For Trekkies” from last year, this is a little bit hard core. If you’re not a fan of the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW, you’re going to have a rough time…
“The Rocky Horror Show” debuted in London in 1973. It ran for almost 3,000 performances. It’s Broadway run was a lttle shorter: 45, plus a few previews. The 1975 film adaptation starred Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick. It didn’t do great in theatres until long after it’s release, when it began to be a staple of midnight screenings and cult festivals. It is now widely considered to have the longest ever theatrical run. I was too young to catch the last show at Toronto’s Roxy in 1983, but I hear it was quite an event.
