In 1936, anti-drug propaganda film Reefer Madness portrayed in vivid detail the disasters that befall a group of teenagers who decide to try "marijuana" -- otherwise known as the devil's drug. In the 1970s, the film was rediscovered and became a cult classic due to its over-the-top portrayal of the alleged dangers of smoking weed, which include death, destruction, madness and ... jazz. Inspired by the original film, this tongue-in-cheek musical comedy continues the hijinks in an even wackier form, memorializing the melodrama in songs that range from Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes. It would be a big mistake to (puff, puff) pass on this production of Reefer Madness: The Musical at the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center in San Diego.

For the last six years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the UK, and the cast is now bringing the good time to Boston. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, the show is fresh off sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson's Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two.

"What They Said About Love was funny, poignant, thoughtful and revealing about the search for love. It was an amazing performance," said Richard Connema, TalkinBroadway.com. Actor and writer Steve Budd wonders why other people can and he can't -- tie the knot, that is. So he asked couples about the push and pull of love -- what keeps them from pulling apart despite annoying the heck out of each other. Meet a New Age couple that swears they met before they met, a pair of Metal Heads who thought it would be a hoot to get married on 6-6-06 and more. Satisfy your voyeuristic tendencies about how others look for love -- and, in some cases, find it. This is documentary theater at its best, a la Anna Deavere Smith. Steve Budd brings 12 characters to life, using their words from hours of interviews, and weaves in the story of his own search for a life partner.

Set in 1913, Parade tells the true story of Leo Frank, a Brooklyn-raised Jew living in Georgia. Frank is put on trial for the murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a factory worker he employed. Already deemed guilty in the eyes of everyone around him, Frank suffered the added consequences of sensationalist news stories and a janitor's false testimony. His only defenders were a governor with a conscience and, eventually, his assimilated Southern wife, who finds the strength and love to become his greatest champion. When it hits the stage at El Cerrito Performing Arts Theater, Parade will reveal a deeply human lesson about how love and human connection can be forged, even in a climate of intolerance. The show features a cast of over 30 performing arts students -- ages 13 to 21 -- from cities throughout the Bay Area.
