50 Shades! The Musical

Please note: This event has already occurred.
Once E.L. James's S&M-tinged bodice-ripper "Fifty Shades of Grey" rocketed to the top of the New York Times bestseller list, it was only a matter of time before the novel got its own musical, complete with an exclamation point. What's surprising about the parody is what a warm reception it's received, from Edinburgh to New York and Chicago to San Francisco. Baby Wants Candy, the improv troupe that gave us Rachel Dratch, is responsible for this adaptation, which depicts the book's hunky protagonist, Christian Grey, as chubby and boisterous. And we thought casting Charlie Hunnam was controversial.
