Could you tell us a little bit about the history of Reefer Madness and your involvement with it?
Now, what about the New York production?
How did it transfer into making the movie?
You said before that the show and movie were essentially about questioning authority. What were you and the cast hoping the audience would take away after seeing this?
That's a good message to want your audience to take away, honestly.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the movie. How has it been working with some of the original cast to put together this show at 54 below?
What are you looking forward to the most about the 54 Below show?
They sure do! You mentioned before about the production/movie being viewed as a cult classic. How do you feel about that?
Along with starring in this concert as Jimmy Harper, you are also credited as a consulting producer of this event at 54 Below. What has your experience as a producer been like while working on this project?
Let's talk about you for a minute! How did you first get involved in performing?
What has been a rewarding career experience or memory that has stuck with you?
What has been the most invaluable advice you have received over the years? Going off of that, what advice would you give to aspiring performers?
