5O SHADES! THE MUSICAL - THE OFFICIAL PARODY Comes to the Long Center, 6/3-4
It's the perfect excuse for an Austin girl's night out. 50 Shades! The Musical-The Official Parody, a hilarious take on the global Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon, will premiere at the Long Center tonight and tomorrow, June 3 and 4. Think: 90 minute SNL skit!
Sold out audiences in Chicago and New York were screaming for more. The show's hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival earned a 4-star review. And now, Austin audiences get the chance to enjoy!
The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has shattered sales records around the world with more than 32 million copies sold in the United States alone. Now in the works: a 2015 Universal Pictures feature film that is sure to be a blockbuster.
50 Shades! The Musical is a sexy, hilarious romp... a laugh out loud night of fun that audiences won't want to miss!
50 Shades! The Musical opens with a ladies book club deciding to read Fifty Shades of Grey. Through their interpretation of the novel, the audience is led on a hilarious roller coaster ride of this unlikely bestseller. The show is full of dance numbers, 11 original songs and a live band backing the performance. Original songs include "They Get Nasty", "I Don't Make Love", and "There's a Hole Inside of Me".
Like the book series, 50 Shades! The Musical is surely not for those under the age of 18, but does not cross boundaries that would make general audiences squirm.
