Musical comedy inspired by the 1936 film and directed by Andy Fickman and presented by the Factory Edge Theater Works.
Want to get high? You might change your mind after seeing Factory Edge Theatre Works' musical production of Reefer Madness. Adapted for the stage in 1998, Reefer Madness was originally released in 1936 as a propaganda film that depicted the "dangers" of cannabis use by teenagers-homicide, suicide, rape, and psychosis, to name a few. These dangers fuel the satire of the stage version. Though the musical does not promote marijuana use outright, its plot, characters, and musical numbers scrutinize even our modern preconceptions of the Demon Weed. Once meant to show the incompatibility of a cannabis culture within an austere, American-Gothic lifestyle, Reefer Madness highlights the ongoing public debate about good old Mary Jane.
