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 ofRocky 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.
