Did anyone make it to opening night of the revised Reefer Madness in Hollywood? I'm really curious to hear about it since that show was one of my first proper fandoms.

Also curious! Love the movie musical but never see the stage show produced… curious how this is!

They certainly had some big names at the opening, including Angelina Jolie.

Did anyone see this one yet? I’m really curious about the song list, because it’s fluctuated so much over the last three decades. Plus I think there are new songs in this version, but it’s cut to a ninety-minute one act apparently?

Hopefully they interpolated "Mary Jane" from the TV movie, which instantly became the best song in the score.

I believe that was part of the revised version they workshopped in 2019. 
Considering the celebrities attached as producers, I’m surprised this production has had almost nothing in the way of press or reviews.

As soon as the movie was released, they created a new licensing version incorporating the best of LA, NY and the movie. I was in the show in 2008 at a community theatre and they had added in Mary Jane/Mary Lane by then, as well as the salsa dance in “Five and Dime.”
