Georgia mayor shuts down local production of 'Rocky Horror'


(Adam Rose/FOX)

In a real-life story that is practically ripped from an episode of Glee, the mayor of Carrollton, Ga. has cancelled a stage production of The Rocky Horror Show that was slated to open Oct. 27 at the city-owned Carrollton Cultural Arts Center after viewing a risqué video clip from rehearsal. “I found it very offensive, not in keeping with the community of Carrolton, if you will,” Garner told Atlanta’s NBC-11 news.

The cast of the production now hopes to perform their show at a private venue – which the mayor would have no problem with – and they’ve rallied support on Facebook.
