With sold out audiences in Chicago screaming for more, and a hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a 4-star review, the original parody 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is coming for the first time to Raleigh at the Progress Energy Center on April 2 - 6 (Tuesday & Wednesday 7:30; Thursday, Friday & Saturday 6:30 & 9:30pm)
The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has shattered sales records around the globe with more than 32 million copies sold in the United States alone and a 2013 Universal Pictures feature film release is sure to be a cinematic blockbuster. Now, world-renowned musical comedy ensemble BABY WANTS CANDY delivers the only theatrical incarnation that gives the brand what it really deserves! A sexy, hilarious romp, 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is a laugh out loud night of fun that audiences won't want to miss!
50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL opens with a ladies book club deciding to read Fifty Shades of Grey. Through their interpretation of the novel, the audience is lead on a hilarious roller coaster ride of this unlikely bestseller. The show is full of dance numbers, 11 original songs and a live band backing the performance. Original songs include "They Get Nasty", "I Don't Make Love, I F#*!", and "There's a Hole Inside of Me".
The signature show for BABY WANTS CANDY is the 60-minute improvised musical, and the ensemble takes these comedic skills to craft this sidesplitting scripted musical. Like the book series, 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is surely not for those under the age of 18, but does not cross boundaries that would make general audiences squirm.
50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL will premiere at A.J. Fletcher Theater located in the Progress Energy Center on April 2 - 6, 2013. Tickets go on sale Monday, January 28 at 10am and range from $28.00 - 45.00 and group discounts are available at (919)996-8707.
