“Let’s be honest. It’s pretty difficult to make an alien-cannibal rock opera about a “sweet transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania” boring, but time, repetition, and community theater troupes full of straight people have unwittingly chipped away at the show’s bite, taming the selfsame elements that made the 1975 Tim Curry film such a pivotal queer oasis for countless high schoolers in suburban America who longed to express themselves outside the prescribed gender binary. Leave it to the campy whimsy of the Club Sway family to set the record straight (or rather, right) this Halloween season as it’s done for the past four years. Drag queen Hairy-Kate Olsen is both director and The Narrator; the cast of Sway regulars, whose dead seriousness about dressing up/making pageantry, will be the heartbeat of these 8 performances." - Stephanie Smittle, Arkansas Times
