John Kehoe, Creator
The idea for 420: The Musical show came to Kehoe in 2011 when he realized he had no discernible plans for 4/20, so he decided to write a musical. From 2012-2016, he has produced the show 4 times, directed 5 separate productions of 420, designed and constructed the set from 2012-2015, and has performed in the roles of "The Mighty High" and "Bill / Hork". Despite the current political controversy that surrounds marijuana legalization, Kehoe reminds us that 420: The Musical is intended to be a light-hearted comedy to entertain audiences whether they're high or not. With the all-inclusive spirit in mind, this show has been able to reach stoner and non-smokers alike.
Laura Lonski, Composer
Lonski performed in the original role of "Becki/Bic" from 2012-2013 and served as music director for every Buffalo show from 2012-2015. She produced 420 in Buffalo in 2014, as part of Buffalo Infringement Festival, and again in 2015 at Milkie's on Elmwood. After re-locating to New York City, she produced 420 at the The Secret Theatre in Queens in 2016. She served as musical director for the show's first off-Broadway run at Theatre 80 in New York and for the show's first appearance at the 2016 NYC Cannabis Parade stage in Union Square. In 2017, Lonski produced the sold out performances at the annual 420 show and first ever 420 Xmas special at the Kraine Theater. Lonski brought the show to Brooklyn in 2018 and will be producing 420 again at the Kraine Theatre in 2019 for a full month of shows.
