I starred as Frank N Furter in The Rocky Horror Show at Gateway Playhouse, August 24-September 10. The audience is so freely involved. The costumes, the zaniness, the freedom to be such a CHARACTER has made this show a blast!
Got some nice reviews, too!
"The moment you lay your eyes on Dr. Frank-N-Furter you are captivated. Matthew LaBanca, as the pansexual Frank-N-Furter, is utterly amazing—compelling in every way—and he can pull off those platform heels and skimpy outfits while embodying the eccentric “Sweet Transvestite” from Transsexual, Transylvania, perfectly. He channels Tim Curry’s iconic portrayal of the doctor, and with a strong voice to match." Dan's Papers (The Hamptons)
"Matthew LaBanca is fabulous as the crazy Frank-N-Furter. He owns the character’s outrageous antics and performs with confidence and vigor." NY Theater Guide
"Fun... a Rocky Horror party! Frank-N-Furter is glam — Matthew LaBanca wears it well in retro Tim Curry (the original Frank) glory. And sells it, too." Newsday
