ATHENS, Ga. – “50 Shades! The Musical,” the hilarious parody of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” phenomenon, is coming to The Classic Center Theatre Friday, Dec. 6 at 8 p.m.
Tickets are $28-$35 and on sale now.
The original parody, which earned a 4-star review at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, has sold out audiences in Chicago and New York and left them screaming for more.
The “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy has shattered book sales records around the globe with more than 32 million copies sold in the United States alone, and a 2014 feature film release is sure to be a cinematic blockbuster.
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” and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me.”
Like the book series, “50 Shades! The Musical” is not for those under the age of 18, but it does not cross any boundaries that would make general audiences squirm.
“50 Shades! The Musical” is produced by Marshall Cordell, Albert Samuels and Emily Dorezas. The show is not associated with, endorsed or authorized by E.L. James or Vintage Books.
