Broadway In Chicago is pleased to announce that, after sold out audiences in New York and a hit run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a 4-star review, 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL – THE ORIGINAL PARODY is returning to Chicago and will play at the Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place (175 E Chestnut) for one week only, Oct. 22 – 27, 2013. Individual tickets are on- sale now, starting at $29.

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. 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 led 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”, and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me”.

50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL is produced by Marshall Cordell, Albert Samuels and Emily Dorezas.
