A beloved guilty pleasure of readers worldwide, the racy novel Fifty Shades of Grey sold 30 million copies in the United States between March and June of this year alone. The exceedingly popular story, which centers on the relationship between a naïve college graduate and a billionaire with a sadistic sexual appetite, has inspired countless spoofs, including Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody, a live-action interpretation of the acclaimed soft-core novel. The theatrical comedy—written and directed by Jim Millan, whose credits include the documentary Kids in the Hall: Tour of Duty—thrills onlookers with the brawn of a Chippendales dance routine and the nonstop hilarity of a whoopee cushion stuck on repeat. Audience members who arrive early can sip on preshow cocktails and stick around after the show for a meet and greet and photo-op with the cast.
