It's just a jump to the left and then a step to the right at The Rocky Horror Picture Show Live Tribute, celebrating 35 years of sweet transvestism with Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito and Billy Idol onstage, along with TV celebs Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother), Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison (Glee) — hopefully all in drag. Promoted as a “hybrid musical event,” the show combines scenes from the iconic midnight movie with live performances, culminating in a costume ball so fishneterrific you'll surely plead, “Touch-a touch-a touch-a touch me.” Produced by Lou Adler, the man who brought the original British play Stateside in 1974 (and the film's executive producer), the evening benefits the Painted Turtle, a hospital outreach program for ill children, part of Paul Newman's Hole-in-the-Wall Gang camps. Dammit, Janet!
