by Jessica Naftaly - Sep 29, 2014

'Nothing changes, does it?' asks Margaret Thompson on the fourth episode of season five of BOARDWALK EMPIRE.

BWW Reviews: TUTS Underground's Production of REEFER MADNESS is HIGH-lariously Good
by Nyderah Williams - Sep 28, 2014

The story focuses on two All-American and clean cut high school sweethearts Jimmy (Sean McGee) and Mary Lane (Taylor Beyer). They want to grow up together, have babies, lots of friends and end up happily ever after like their favorite couple “Romeo and Juliet” (a story in which they don't know the horrible ending). Well much like their favorite couple, they are pulled apart and struggle against the odds of being together. Jimmy, under the pretense that he's getting some jazz dance lessons, gets sucked into the lair of a reefer den and after one puff of what they have to offer; he becomes hooked and quickly abandons everything he knows. His fall from grace into a world of debauchery and sexual promiscuity brings on the mayhem as he struggles to choose between the hypnotizing Mary Jane, and his sweetheart Mary Lane. (more...)
