'50 Shades! The Musical' coming to Auditorium Theatre

01:55 PM, Mar 25, 2013


If you couldn’t get enough of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy — or just liked to make fun of people who did — a new musical coming to the Auditorium Theatre might just give you the laughs you need.

50 Shades! The Musical — which is a parody of the book series that has shattered sales records — will be in town for one performance, at 7:30 p.m. May 16 at the theater, 885 E. Main St.

The musical, definitely not for children, received rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and play to sold-out audiences in Chicago and New York.

The musical opens with a book club deciding to read Fifty Shades of Grey. The rest is the club members’ interpretations of the novel, including songs such as “They Get Nasty.”

Tickets start at $39.50 and are available at the theater box office, Ticketmaster.com or (800) 745-3000.
