BWW Reviews: THE SAVANNAH DISPUTATION Offers Saucy and Serious Wit
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - May 04, 2014

Portland Stage closes its 2013-2014 season with a sharp production of Evan Smith's saucy, yet serious comedy, The Savannah Disputation, as play which examines the foibles of faith and the thorny issues of religious dogma. Smith's 2009 play, set in his native Savannah, recounts the story of two aging sisters, Mary and Margaret, whose devout Catholicism is challenged by the visit of a fundamentalist missionary, Melissa. Engaged in a dialogue against their will, the sisters soon find themselves plunged into a full-fledged theological disputation, which prompts them to call for reinforcement from their parish priest. The ensuing heated and hilarious conversation tests the tenacity of each of the character's beliefs. (more...)

SPANK! Sequel to Play Colonial Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Jan 22, 2014

The original SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody was last year's #1 show across the country, delivering naughty and hilarious fun to women in over 150 cities across the US. Now, the ALL NEW, SPANK! Harder picks up where the original left off. The characters that became audience favorites are back including sassy 'author," 'E.B. Janet" and ladies' favorite naughty hunk, 'Hugh Hanson." This time, it's double trouble as Hugh must compete with a handsome new love rival who is his complete opposite. SPANK! Harder brings the laughs to a whole new level, parodying not only 'Fifty Shades' but many of women's favorites they will recognize from movies to television and beyond. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Creators of The 50 Shades Parody Deserve a SPANKing
by Jeff Davis - Jun 07, 2013

It doesn't get much more disappointing than Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody, an incredibly misguided spoof of the equally misguided novel Fifty Shades of Grey, where every joke is predictable, expected, bland, and punctuated by ferocious dry-humping. (more...)

BWW Reviews: SPANK! Screaming Women Encourage the Sexual Goings-On at The Hanna Theatre
by Roy Berko - Jan 19, 2013

There are some weird and off-beat goings-on in downtown Cleveland's PlayhouseSquare. At the State, cross-dressers and a transvestite are feverishly dancing and preening in PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT, THE MUSICAL. At the Hanna, witches and warlocks are cavorting in BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE. On stage at the Hanna, in SPANK! THE FIFTY SHADES PARODY, whips, chains, handcuffs and undulating abs have the mostly 20-something female crowd screaming for more. Yes, female crowd...the farer sex outnumbered the males by at least 100 to 1. (more...)

BWW Reviews: SPANK! THE FIFTY SHADES PARODY is Laugh-A-Minute, Raunchy Fun
by David Clarke - Jan 18, 2013

By now, you've heard of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey, the erotica novel that found mainstream success and wide readership in 2011. You probably even know it spurned a trilogy (what isn't a trilogy these days). And you may have even read at least a portion of the novel yourself. You may have swooned over Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey's torrid and steamy couplings and love affair. Well, Houston's Society for the Performing Arts is ready to make you relive the release of America's pent-up sexual frustration and laugh raucously at the same time with their presentation of Mills Entertainment's SPANK! THE FIFTY SHADES PARODY. (more...)
