Reefer Madness features a book by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney with music by Studney and lyrics by Murphy.

Since its original Off-Broadway production in 2001, Reefer Madness has achieved a cult status in the vein of Rocky Horror and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, due in large to the award-winning 2005 Sundance film adaptation.

Inspired by the over-the-top 1936 anti-pot propaganda film of the same name, Reefer Madness, according to press notes, "takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the hysteria caused when clean-cut kids fall prey to marijuana, leading them on a hysterical downward spiral filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence." 54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. Tickets start at $42 with a $25 minimum and can be purchased at 54Below.com.
