“Michael Rennie was ill/ the day the Earth stood still/ But he told us where we stand.” So begins one of the most enduring and cherished cult musicals of all time, which Paper Wing unpacks each year in time to ride the Halloween holiday antici…pation. It’s full of dark confections like its throwback 1950s and arty black fashion sense, naughty and indulgent sexual transgression, and an ensemble of outcasts and misfits. But best of all is its music, a bunch of urgent and catchy tunes that mix rock opera, syrupy strings, rockabilly, over-the-top vocalizations, and lots-o fun, beloved by denizens of an alternative world that would make stars of the kitschy and the marginal. As always, Paper Wing invite costumes, props and shout-outs. New this year: four separate casts throughout the week with gender-fluid casting, a live DJ mixing at the 7:30pm Sunday shows, and a Frank N. Furter zen room before the show and during intermission for “a special treat.” It runs 8pm Thursdays through Saturdays, 11:59pm Saturdays, 7:30pm Sundays, Oct. 10 through Nov. 10. [WR]
