Update February 4: We've got a video to share, and the play's getting good reviews. Go check it out.

First reporting: Reefer Madness: The Musical comes to Theatre 99 for a six night run over two weeks.

This musical is inspired by the original 1936 film of the same name, 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.

The addictive and clever musical numbers range from big Broadway-style showstoppers such as the swing tune "Down at the Ol' Five and Dime" , the Vegas-style "Listen to Jesus, Jimmy," and full-cast gospel number "The Truth" -- as well as beautiful, melodic love ballads.

Performances go on for two Thursday-Saturday runs on January 29-31 and February 5-7.

It's $23 for adults and $16 for students.

Reserve tickets by calling (843) 853-6687, or buy them online.

They're located at 280 Meeting Street in downtown Charleston.
