Broadway In Chicago is thrilled to announced that with sold-out audiences across the country begging for more, 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL PARODY returns to Chicago for a limited one-week engagement at the Broadway Playhouse (175 East Chestnut) January 13 – 18, 2015.

The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy has shattered sales records around the globe with more than 100 million copies sold worldwide and a Universal Pictures feature film releasing on Valentine’s Day 2015 is sure to be a cinematic blockbuster. This sexy and hilarious send-up to Fifty Shades of Grey, the greatest novel EVER, has audiences rolling on the floor and dancing in the aisles! 50 SHADES! THE MUSICAL PARODY is the hilariously naughty satire that explores the steamy relationship between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, as seen through the eyes of a trio of girlfriends at a book club meeting. As the women devour the novel, the character’s delicious affair comes to life before their eyes. After all, who needs staid book club fare when a book like this can be so…stimulating. This laugh-out-loud musical features a sassy original score, including such songs “Open Your Book,” “I Don’t Make Love,” and “There Is A Hole Inside Of Me.” Like the book series, 50 SHADES! is surely not for those under the age of 18, but does not cross boundaries that would make general audiences squirm. 50 SHADES! is produced by Marshall Cordell, Albert Samuels and Emily Dorezas.
