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

Being a young man in today's society, I'm always interested in artists speaking the language of the times. I thought Eric and Matt did a great job of re-telling the "Othello" story. I am a big fan of Hip Hop, and was really impressed with their handle on the genre. I thought the actors were all really talented; and the fact that it's a workshop production made me even more impressed with the level of their work. I know what it's like to have 2 weeks to put a show together, and they really left me with no complaints. I look forward to seeing a FULL production of this piece in the future!

- "The ace in the hole is Sax, so assured as both writer and performer that he redefines charisma for a hip new age."<em> --Variety</em>
<p>Matt Sax and Eric Rosen, the team behind the hit show Clay, are back at the Douglas with their new show Venice, a hip-hop musical about betrayal and politics. This workshop production, loosely based on Shakespeare's Othello, promises to be a high voltage musical experience.
Directed by Rosen, Venice is a hip-hop musical about betrayal and politics in a post-Apocalyptic world and is loosely based on Shakespeare’s Othello.
Post-show discussions will be held after each workshop presentation of Venice.</p>
