Inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence. The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes like "Down at the Ol' Five and Dime" and the Vegas-style "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy," featuring J.C. himself leading a chorus of showgirl angels. Reefer Madness is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary. "Reefer Madness broadly expands on the skeleton plot of the original film and turns it into a deliciously campy, wickedly funny romp... This show combines the main character from Godspell with the kinkiness of The Rocky Horror Show and the traditional musical theatre aesthetic of A Chorus Line..." Johnnie Walker, Strand (Toronto) "Reefer deliberately outlandish and silly. And that's what makes it so good…[the show includes] a dozen or so over-the-top and hilarious production numbers." Robert Dominguez, New York Daily News "The funniest thing to come down the pike -- or the pipe -- in a while." Eric Marchese, Backstage
