Mommy Porn, the Musical

Nothing says you've made it like a spoof, and so it is with the literary smash 50 Shades of Grey. First there was 50 Sheds of Grey (a gardener is forcefully pleasured by his novel-reading wife), and now comes 50 Shades! The Musical. Called "a play your inner goddess, your book club, and your mother-in-law can all agree on" by Time magazine, 50 Shades! The Musical opens with a ladies book club that decides to read the famous novel. The show then proceeds to lampoon the book and its effect on readers. Some of the song titles, such as "They Get Nasty" and "I Don't Make Love" would feel at home on an E-40 or Snoop Dogg record, but are presented in such an earnest, campy style they could make any curmudgeon chuckle. And many of the book's scenes are changed to hilarious effect — in the parody version, the older male sex symbol is given a beer gut. Producers of 50 Shades! say the show is intended for viewers 18 and up, but promise the content won't make general audiences squirm.
