If you forgot, or somehow didn’t know that L.A. has one of the country’s longest running
shadowcasts of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, well, as the ensemble would lovingly
say, “fuck you.” Sins O' the Flesh, L.A.’s Rocky Horror troupe, dedicated to debauchery
and all things fishnet, has been stirring up mayhem at the NuArt Theatre every Saturday
at midnight since 1988. When calculated, this totals over 1,300 performances, making
Sins O’ the Flesh the longest running Rocky Horror shadowcast to have performed at the
same theatre since the group’s inception. That’s a lot of converted “virgins.”

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is still relevant today, and Sins O’ the Flesh puts on a
high-energy, deliciously filthy, hysterical show and not for the money (since they don’t
get paid), but for the love of the film and the Rocky Horror community. The cast and
crew provide costumes, makeup, props, and set pieces for themselves. They also work
their asses off on that stage. So, dammit, when they ask for donations at the end of the
night, take into consideration the great fucking time you had and remember you’re not
going to get this experience anywhere else. All photos by Jared Cowan.
