The worldwide phenomenon Fifty Shades of Grey has captivated audiences across the globe. So, clearly the time has come for a parody. 50 Shades! The Musical -- The Original Parody is a hilarious, sexy romp featuring dance numbers, songs and a live on-stage band ready to bring the steamy words to vivid life. A hit in Chicago, New York and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the show now makes its Los Angeles premiere. 50 Shades! makes for an unexpectedly funny roller coaster ride through the book, featuring original songs like "They Get Nasty" and "There's a Hole Inside of Me." You won't want to miss this laugh-out-loud mix of music, comedy and sexual shenanigans. Opt for the "Red Room Experience" offer for access to the VIP Red Room after the show, which includes a cast meet-and-greet, a drink ticket and a collectible merchandise tie. Learn More

Outstanding performance---riveting story, beautifully executed. RGS always delivers first-rate intensely powerful theatre. The piece was at times outrageously funny, at times achingly heartbreaking. I knew nothing of the historical event in advance, and went mainly because of the performer. i found myself immediately immersed in the narrative. JUAN & JOHN is not to be missed. I plan to go back again!
Quotes & Highlights
- "Roger Guenveur Smith believes in the interconnectedness of history: that our lives, big and small, are enmeshed in the great tangle of events, big and small."--Rachel Saltz, <em>The New York Times</em>
The Watts Towers Project was a high point of Solomania! at the Douglas in 2006. Smith returns with an equally powerful and poetic work based on the true story of baseball legends Juan Marichal and John Roseboro and the infamous 1965 day when Marichal turned and hit Roseboro in the head with his bat. Smith witnessed the event on television and passionately presents it as part of a greater story that encompasses the Watts riots, Catholicism, the notions of marriage,family and, ultimately, redemption and forgiveness.
