In all honesty, who else better than he to helm a production of the thoroughly madcap and deliciously campy musical now onstage at Darkhorse Theater through this weekend as the final show of ACT 1's season? With his resolute focus and encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture, Lewis - along with his collaborators musical director Rollie Mains and choreographer Stephanie Jones-Benton - creates a veritable camp classic from the pages of the script by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney , based upon the potboiling film of the same name that attempted to scare the bejesus out of movie-going audiences in Now, Lewis and his team have breathed new life into the show, guaranteeing audiences will be left howling and guffawing, essentially breathless due to the high-flying antics of the superbly cast ensemble of actors who bring the outsized, outrageous and cartoonish characters to the stage. Melodramatic and arch, Murphy and Studney's incisive script takes inspiration from the original propaganda film to tell the story of a stalwart young American named Jimmy Harper and his hometown sweetheart Mary Lane - whose sweetly innocent romance is captured perfectly in "Romeo and Juliet" - to show the havoc that could be wrought by "The Stuff" aka "Demon Weed" pushed upon their impressionable selves by the dastardly Jack Stone and his crew at the local reefer den, located along some bucolic back alley in the middle of the quintessenti Al Small town USA. As "the lecturer" - played with the proper level of unctuousness and superiority by the capable and entertaining Ben Gregory - solemnly intones his warning to his audience in a rather immersive touch, playgoers become the citizens of the town attending a meeting to learn the dangers of "marihuana" , the further misadventures of Jimmy and Mary unspool onstage at a cinematically inclined pace guaranteed to keep you engaged, perhaps even driving your own addiction to the campy spectacle that includes three weed-addled dope fiends and their zombie-like comrades, a half-naked Jesus proselytizing for all that is holy and a red-white-and-blue chorus of American icons urging Jimmy and company to rid themselves and, therefore, society of the hallucinogenic reefer. It's all in good fun, of course, and while everything about Reefer Madness borders on the tasteless, with tongue planted firmly in cheek, the story is told with enough glitz and glitter to keep you engaged from start to finish, even if you have the notion it might be even more fun if you were a few tokes over the line yourself.
