Ron Maxwell first saw THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW in the summer of 1979 at the New Yorker Theater (now a condominium complex) in New York City, where he started performing the character of Brad Majors. One year later in the summer of 1980, he joined the cast at the famous 8th Street Playhouse in Greenwich Village. 15 years and 4 theaters later he is still performing with the current iteration of the 8th Street Cast. "That fateful night, when I went to see ROCKY HORROR for the first time, really changed my life...", he says, "definitely for the better."
