A new a parody play of Fifty Shades of Grey “ Fifty Shades! The Musical “ It opened to long lines at Chicago’s Apollo Theater last month,
and now it is making its way to New York on January 11 and 12 at the Gramercy Theatre on East 23rd Street , DailyMail reports .
Fifty Shades! The Musical has arrived, and while it is an unofficial parody of E.L James’ bestselling erotic romance novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, it is already becoming a hit across America.
Created by a comedy troupe called Baby Wants Candy, the musical is full of dance numbers, with a live band backing the performance of 11 original songs with titles like, ‘They Get Nasty’, ‘I Don’t Make Love, I F#*!, and ‘There’s a Hole Inside of Me’.
The musical starts with a ladies’ book club that has decided to read Fifty Shades of Grey, and then the audience sees what they are reading more or less come to life.
According to the Chicago Tribune’s Chris Jones, the show is ‘a little collection of modestly amusing sketches and original songs, partly celebrating the daring raunch of the original book, and partly lampooning its central characters.‘
The actor playing Christian Grey, the studly hero of the book, has a potbelly for example.
‘Everyone kept their clothes on, mercifully, but dirty songs abounded,‘ the Chicago Tribune commented.
‘A couple of male dancers showed up and cavorted a little in the background. ‘[But] that’s not enough for all these women in the audience, I thought to myself. They’re looking for more.’
