50 Shades! The Musical - The Original 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 New York. And audiences are gagging with delight....

There have been more than 60 printings of the book andUniversal Studios will release the film on February 13, 2015. The book has made reading erotica on the subway acceptable.
