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

Really fine work from a polished, confident solo performer. Touching, very funny, and comforting without being cloying or grossly sentimental. If you go, sit back and enjoy the moments, not just the plot or How All The Characters Match Up...this is theatre to relax into. The writing is really sharp, characters specific and unique, and I found the themes of longing and decency and self-respect worth contemplating post-show. Somewhat redolent of the television show, Hung, it stands on its own among the new wave of male prostitute comedy/drama.

Virtuosic writer-performer David Cale will bring his latest work to the Kirk Douglas Theatre. In Palomino, he portrays seven people in a sensuous tale that follows Irishman Kieren McGrath, a beautiful, literate and mysterious Central Park carriage driver. Kieren dreams of writing a book, and when the opportunity to become an escort to rich, lonely women in New York presents itself, he's found his subject. Or has he?
Cale is best known for his solo works A Likely Story, Deep in a Dream of You, Smooch Music, The Redthroats (which was presented by CTG in the 1988 Taper, Too season), and the Obie Award-winning Lillian. His monologues have been featured on Public Radio's This American Life and NPR's The Next Big Thing. As a lyricist, his words have been sung by Elvis Costello, Deborah Harry and the Jazz Passengers. As an actor he performed on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera and most recently starred in the off-Broadway production of Mouth to Mouth at The New Group. He has appeared in films including Two Lovers, Pollock and most notably, playing the homeless drifter Studebaker in The Slaughter Rule, opposite David Morse and Ryan Gosling.
