Dave, a dispensary owner, and Alicia, an infectiously cheerful doctor who has a marijuana-friendly medical practice near Dave's weed shop in Los Angeles, meet through an online dating service and have an instant connection. Both hesitate to disclose their weed-based careers to each other for fear of facing rejection due to the historically taboo nature of pot. As they each lie to conceal the true nature of their jobs, the irony is that they're a perfect match. Meanwhile, Dave's ridiculous ex-girlfriend threatens to shut down the weed shop after finding out he has a new love in his life. Weed Shop is a coming-out story of sorts, reminding audiences to feel proud to be who they are and what they do. Not just for marijuana enthusiasts, the musical touches on universally comedic and heartwarming themes of love, self-expression and identity, with an entertaining mashup of classic Broadway tunes tinged with elements of rock opera, pop, jazz and even funk. Inhale the vibe at Eclectic Company Theatre in North Hollywood.
