Cuff Me: The Fifty Shades of Grey Musical Parody
Sending up the oft-mocked but equally beloved bestseller, Cuff Me: The Fifty Shades of Grey Musical Parody treats audiences to an evening of goofy, satirical fun. Parodies of pop songs such as “Poker Face,” “Call Me Maybe,” and “Since U Been Gone” fill in the show’s plot, which bounces between an over-the-top retelling of the erotic novel and a gossipy discussion of the book’s virtues and flaws in a nail salon. The piece was written by New York improv troupe the Pushers, and the zippy one-liners and ensemble-based laughs are as abundant as one would expect.
There was no joy—or Puccini—in Millville when the Wilson Opera House burned to rubble in 1898. Thankfully for entertainment seekers, the Levoy Theatre rose from those ashes just 10 years later, starting out as a silent movie hall and vaudeville house in 1908. As with many theaters in the National Register of Historic Places, the Levoy witnessed vaudeville's demise when Warner Brothers turned it into a movie house in 1930. It saw great success throughout the '40s, but then suffered 36 years of vacancy during the age of the multiplexes. Then, in 1998, the Levoy Theater Preservation Society formed to save the landmark from extinction and restore its luster. Today, the marquee, facade, and interiors mirror the Levoy of the 1920s, and brand-new seats and a souped-up sound system help audiences forget about the world outside. The theater's diverse array of programming includes music concerts, dance productions, movies, and comedies, as well as dramas and musicals by The Off Broad Street Players, its resident theater company. But despite the times, the Levoy hasn't forgotten its roots, and at its 2013 reopening the silent films of Charles Chaplin and Buster Keaton graced the screen, accompanied by a ragtime orchestra.
