This is a fantastic musical loosely based on the original Reefer Madness anti-marijuana film, with lots of verve, talent, skilled acting, and lots of dancing. It's not just about reefer, but about all forms of state-sponsored (and church-sponsored) repression -- which sounds like less fun than it is. This is not for kids, and not for those who get nervous about blasphemy or sexuality. Some perhaps unnecessary gore towards the end, but my wife and I have watched this show over and over, and she has most of the songs memorized, especially when Jesus confronts Jimmy Harper at the Club Celestial!
