Complaint Against 'Horror' Shut Down in Georgia

Dramatists Guild of America members have issued a letter of complaint regarding a Georgia mayor's decision to shut down a community theater production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” Playbill reported. Wayne Garner, the mayor of a Carrollton, GA, terminated the production even after it had been approved by a city board and the show’s producers guaranteed that only adults would be allowed to attend the musical. Local politicians viewed the show’s raunchy content as inappropriate for a city-owned community arts center.

In a letter, Stephen Schwartz, president of Dramatists Guild of America, chastised the town’s decision and offered the support of all the Guild members to the local production. The musical’s director and the producers are attempting to raise money to produce the show in an independent venue.
