In what might be the perfect pop culture collision of communal viewing, fans of the TV show Glee gathered at the Williamson Street nightclub Plan B on Tuesday night to see an episode devoted to The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The event didn't disappoint.
Lisa Van Buskirk, who attended midnight screenings of Rocky Horror in high school dressed as the character Columbia, is a reluctant Glee fan.
"I didn't want to like it," she says. "It's a guilty pleasure."
The Plan B crowd was spread out enough around the space so everyone could find a comfortable place to lounge. The leather chaises near the front proved popular.
The episode itself was fantastic. When Mercedes landed the part of Frank-N-Furter, the club's patrons cheered. A few attendees broke out into the Time Warp, the iconic Rocky Horror dance, and a lot of people sang along.
Tara Ayres has seen three episodes of Glee at Plan B.
"It's a great idea," she says. "And afterwards, there's karaoke with live piano!"
The next new episode of Glee airs November 7.
