The Doors & Jim Morrison Tribute: Wild Child

The Doors were a legendary live band, and Wild Child has more than 20 years of experience painstakingly reproducing the music, voice, look and on-stage energy of the original members, right down to their instruments. They've toured nationally, and their act has earned praise from The Doors' own Ray Manzarek (who called them "as close as you'll get to the real thing"). In fact, when Manzarek and John Densmore toured Europe, they brought Wild Child's Dave Brock along to re-create the magic and charisma of the late Jim Morrison. Now see Wild Child when they hit the stage at House of Blues San Diego.

Hilarious Musical Based on Campy Classic Film

Date: 2018-07-19 | For more show dates, click here.

In 1936, anti-drug propaganda film Reefer Madness portrayed in vivid detail the disasters that befall a group of teenagers who decide to try "marijuana" -- otherwise known as the devil's drug. In the 1970s, the film was rediscovered and became a cult classic due to its over-the-top portrayal of the alleged dangers of smoking weed, which include death, destruction, madness and ... jazz. Inspired by the original film, this tongue-in-cheek musical comedy continues the hijinks in an even wackier form, memorializing the melodrama in songs that range from Broadway-style showstoppers to swing tunes. It would be a big mistake to (puff, puff) pass on this production of Reefer Madness: The Musical at the Ocean Beach Playhouse and Arts Center in San Diego.
