Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody
A 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 last year alone. The exceedingly popular story, which centers on the relationship between a naïve college graduate and a billionaire with a sadistic sexual appetite, inspires the spoof Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody, a live-action musical interpretation of the acclaimed softcore novel. Making a local stop after leaving audiences across the U.S. and Canada blushing, the theatrical comedy—written and directed by Jim Millan, whose credits include Mythbusters Live and the documentary Kids in the Hall: Tour of Duty—thrills onlookers with the brawn of a Thunder from Down Under dance routine and the nonstop hilarity of a laugh track stuck on repeat. After the show, fans can meet and greet the entire cast, or attempt to keep their composure as they snag a photo with the beefcake leading man.
Like many of Fox's lavish movie palaces, the Meyer opened in the 1930s, only to see its Spanish Atmospheric touches fade over the years as it became a modern triplex cinema. But once it was converted to its current incarnation as a live performing arts venue, the staff worked hard to restore its opulence, from the midnight-blue sky with twinkling stars to columns decorated with gold leaves. The theater's crown jewel, however, is the Mighty Wurlitzer organ, which was refurbished using the original 1927 blueprint. With its pipes ranging from the size of a pencil to 16 feet, the instrument boasts a range of tones and cinematic sound effects, such as horse hooves, chattering teeth, and David O. Russell roaring at his actors.
“The theater alone is spectacular.”
