Reefer Madness the Musical

This wild musical parody is LIT!


October 11 to 27, 2019

Underground at the Hilberry
Book by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney
Music by Dan Studney, Lyrics by Kevin Murphy

The Underground at the Hilberry is accessible by stairs. If you have a mobility concern, please call the box office (313-577-2972) 24 hours in advance so we can assist you.

Inspired by the original 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. A highly stylized show with satirical political commentary, Reefer Madness is not recommended for young audiences.

This production contains adult humor, religious parody, simulated drug use, as well as suggested violence and sexual explicitness.

There is NO LATE SEATING. Out of respect for the audience and the production, patrons arriving after the performance begins will not be admitted.
