50 Shades! The Musical Parody (www.50ShadesTheMusical.com) at The Elektra Theatre (300 W. 43rd Street) is all about naughty fun, something that Shia LaBeouf is all too familiar with. In a new open invitation, the cast would like to Willkommen Shia to 50 Shades! The Musical Parody with open arms so that he can be "transformed" and his "nymphomaniac" tendencies can be embraced.
The video invitation can be seen below!
Variety exclaims, "Clever and wildly entertaining! Newcomers and fans alike should enjoy getting down and dirty" and The New York Post cheers, "50 Shades of funny! Gets The Book of Mormon treatment with added sex!" Time Out New York applauds, "Inspired! Get off on this musical parody!" and The New York Daily News says, "Filthy and funny - a win-win!"
The cast features David Andino (The Buddy Holly Story), Daniel Bentley (Hairspray), Kaitlyn Frotton (Scab), Chris Grace ("The Awkward Moment"), Tim Murray (MTV's "White House Down"), Amber Petty (voice of Sirius/XM's Radio Margaritaville), Casey Rogers (Catch Me If You Can), Alec Varcas (Spamalot), Ashley Ward (Baby Wants Candy), and Chloe Williamson (Save The Date).
50 Shades! The Musical Parody is the hilariously naughty satire based on the greatest novel of all time. The show explores the steamy relationship between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, as seen through the eyes of a trio of girlfriends at a book club meeting. As the women devour the novel, the character's delicious affair comes to life before their eyes. After all, who needs staid book club fare when a book like this can be so...stimulating. This laugh out loud musical features a sassy original score ranging from Gilbert and Sullivan to R & B to Les Miserables, including such songs "Open Your Book," "I Don't Make Love," and "There Is A Hole Inside Of Me." Christian has come. To the heart of Broadway. And it will never be the same.
Since author E.L. James' book was published, more than 100 million copies have been sold worldwide. The novel became the fastest selling paperback book ever, beating out J.K Rowling's Harry Potter series, and was on the New York Times' Best Sellers List for 16 weeks straight. There have been more than 60 printings of the book and Universal Studios will release the film on February 13, 2015. The book has made reading erotica on the subway acceptable.
