Called “A delirious romp, which at its best reaches highs of intoxicating goofiness,” by USA Today, Reefer Madness was inspired by the original 1936 film. This satirical morality tale is a depiction of clean-cut kids lured into a hysterical downward spiral by the evil weed, jazz, sex and violence. The alluring musical numbers range from big Vegas-style show stoppers like “Listen to Jesus, Jimmy,” complete with an angel chorus of showgirls, to swing tunes like “Down at the Ol’ Five and Dime.” Directed by Andy Flickman, with book and lyrics by Kevin Murphy and music by Dan Studney, the musical premiered in Los Angeles in 1999, ran off-Broadway in 2001 and re-emerged as a 2005 movie starring Alan Cumming, Kristen Bell, Neve Campbell and Ana Gasteyer.
