The Minions of Gozer, a live Ghostbusters shadowcast, performed their debut performance to an excited sold out crowd at the IFC Center in New York City last weekend.
Following the traditions of Rocky Horror Picture Show midnight performances, a live rendition of the film was recreated on the stage as well as scenes that aren’t shown on screen (Egon trying to drilling a hole through his head). The audience recreated parts as well, such as tossing index cards in the air as a terrified librarian runs through the aisles, or throwing candy hearts at Dr. Ray Stantz, the heart of the Ghostbusters.
The Minions of Gozer was created by Angela Williams last year, and the debut performance was directed by Eryn Roberts, who also appeared as the show’s Janine and Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
