This is a past event.
When: Fridays. Continues through Aug. 21 2014
Price: $20
Cult Camp Productions’s staging of Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney’s 1999 musical, a spoof of a 1936 cautionary film of the same name, is a spirited romp well suited for both the stoned and sober. High school kid Jimmy, played with impressive physical timing by the long-limbed Jake Bradley, descends into a world of sex, violence, and depravity after one toke of marijuana. In an interesting angel/devil on the shoulder twist, standout Chris Causer plays both his netherworld guide, Jack, and Jesus Christ. Showstopper “Listen to Jesus, Jimmy!” stays in your head long after the curtain drops. Under Corey L. Mill’s direction and choreography, the entire half-baked affair is tight and witty. —Marissa Oberlander
