Alan Cumming & More Set for One Night Only REEFER MADNESS Benefit Concert, 4/19
REEFER MADNESS, the cult classic musical by Dan Studney, lyrics by Kevin Murphy and book by Kevin Murphy & Dan Studney, will return to New York City 13 years after it's limited off-Broadway engagement for a one night only benefit concert event at New World Stages. The all-star cast will include Alan Cumming, Christian Campbell, and Thomas Dekker. Additional casting to be announced in the coming weeks, with surprise guest appearances.
Directed by Ilana Ransom Toeplitz and produced by Shoshana Feinstein, the one night only concert event will take place on Saturday, April 19th at 11:59pm at New World Stages (Stage 2), 340 West 50th Street, New York NY 10019.
All proceeds from the concert will go to Baby Quest Foundation (http://babyquestfoundation.org/)
Since its original Off-Broadway production in 2001, this award-winning musical has taken the world by storm and achieved a cult status in the vein of Rocky Horror and Hedwig and the Angry Inch, due in large to the successful award-winning Sundance film (also starring Cumming & Campbell). Inspired by the 1936 film of the same name, this raucous musical comedy 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.
Tickets go on sale to the general public tomorrow, Wednesday April 2nd, at 10AM and range from $125 to $42. A limited number of $25 "Reefer Den" tickets will be sold, for which participants will be able to watch the concert live-streaming from the New World Stages foyer, complete with a cash bar and surprise guest appearances.
