More about the show:
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.”

“I doubt that even the staunchest opponent of mind-altering substances could resist entirely the effects of this delirious romp, which at its best reaches highs of intoxicating goofiness.”
USA Today

“Divertingly silly… offers plenty of entertainment on its own appealingly unpretentious terms”
Daily Variety

“Gleefully over-the-top.”
Time Out, New York
