We were a little sceptical about going to see a small production like this, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of this show, the acting was first class, the costumes and stage design brilliant and the music accompaniment excellent.
Reefer Madness, the raucous musical comedy inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, 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. You won’t be able to resist the spoofy fun of Reefer Madness!
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. This dynamic show will go straight to your head! Reefer Madness is a highly stylized and satirical political commentary.
It’s 1936 and Jimmy becomes a murderous fiend after being led astray by the “devil weed,” Marijuana. He mouths off to his parents, steals from the poor box, brutalizes small animals and (GASP!) even tries to tongue kiss his shocked girlfriend!
Attempted interventions and pleas by Mom and Jesus (accompanied by backup angels) go unheard and soon Jimmy’s on the lam in a stolen Packard in this campy, over-the-top new musical. It’s safe to say that “with Reefer, there are no happy endings.”
