Want to see how the madness began? Also known as Tell Your Children and The Burning Question, this cult classic is propaganda masquerading as a cautionary tale about the dangers of “marihuana”. Getting hooked is easy but leads teens to fast music, wild dancing, uncontrollable laughter... and murder?! Take a bonus drag on our “Potter” Appreciation Series but be ready for stilted writing and cheesy acting. See it before or after the musical, but it is not crucial for enjoying the latter. And hey: the first one’s free, kid!
