50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL! Comes to Memphis, 5/14
With sold out audiences in Chicago and New York screaming for more, and a hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a 4-star review, 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL-THE ORIGINAL PARODY will premiere in MEMPHIS at THE ORPHEUM THEATRE for one night only on WEDNESDAY, MAY 14, 2014.
The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has shattered sales records around the globe with more than 32 million copies sold in the United States alone and a 2015 Universal Pictures feature film release is sure to be a cinematic blockbuster. A sexy, hilarious romp, 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is 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.
50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is produced by Marshall Cordell, Albert Samuels and Emily Dorezas, and will premiere at The Orpheum Theatre on Wednesday, May 14.
