How can I enjoy 50 shades with an openly gay guy in the lead.
Simply stupid!

Show was absolutely hilarious! Loved it! But a bit disturbed by character that played Christian.....
Convenient free parking across the street at city hall and great little restaurants right around the corner! Awesome girls night out!!!

Great venue! The script was very clever and the songs adorable, but we couldn't get past the poor attire of the cast nor the fact that Christian was not appealing….the character should not have been played by an overweight actor….it didn't make...continued

I haven't read the book and I'm not female, so I am probably not the target demographic for this show. Still, funny is funny so I was hoping for a solid entertainment. The highlight was definitely the three "book club ladies" who between them...continued

Wonderful experience. First row is pretty scary. Cast was great. Completely unexpected interpretation. Verbally graphic so not for auditory whimps

Just had a blast. Parking was easy around the venue, had a lovely nibble at a sushi restaurant behind the theatre and enjoyed the show entirely. Certainly not for everyone, but the crowd in attendance was totally having a grand time.

I believe those who read the book would probably enjoy it a lot better than those who didn't. I read it, but my husband didn't and yet, he had a good time just the same. The women sang beautifully. It's a silly, funny, must-see show that's...continued

I loved the seats Goldstar provided. First Row. But the play is intended for people who have read the books, and alas, I had not.
Talented cast, but I left after the intermission. I had seen enough.

We had seats in the first row just off the center. They were fantastic seats. The audience was about 75% female, i.e. only 25 % came with a male escort, the other 50% came with other women who really seemed to be enjoying the show. I thought it...continued

fun crowd, good singing and dancing by the cast. Sometimes the play reaches a little too far into the gutter to get a laugh...

very funny, excellent cast with perfect comedic timing, and great voices. The play could use a few more bodies on stage, and few more poignant numbers about women empowerment/finding the inner goddess/ resolution of the void one feels in life.

OMG!!! It was one of the funniest musicals I have seen in a really long time. We made it a "girls night out" , had an early dinner at Meet In Paris cafe down the street, then saw the show.
It was Hilarious and super clever. I was the only one in...continued
