BWW Review: SMT's REEFER MADNESS Offers Few HighsBWW Review: SMT's REEFER MADNESS Offers Few Highs

Unfortunately the production currently performing at Seattle Musical Theatre is so unfocused and under produced that it couldn't save anyone. In fact I question whether or not they were all high while they were making it. (more...)
