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

The other ratings were consistent with my take on the play. It was a great performance by the leading actress. The story was written by left wing democrats and it got even farther left wing. The lesbian scenes could have been done a little more artful without as much kissing- you can get the point across artistically without overdoing it. Seats were excellent..my date was a republican heterosexual so she was not too happy with the subject matter.
