  • SPANK: The Fifty Shades Parody is the Perfect Girls’ Night Out!

Fifty Shades of Grey has taken the world by storm, setting the record as the top selling paperback of all-time. Now, it’s time for the novel to get SPANKED!

SPANK! The Fifty Shades Parody is the comedy-filled musical satire that captures all of the naughty fun of the book in this saucy and hilarious show.

Part Chippendales, part Second City…all in one delicious package. This unauthorized parody is set to be the sexiest, funniest, and most exciting show of the year.

SPANK! features an all-star cast of top comedic actors and improvisers. It is written and directed by Jim Millan, whose credits include: “The Kids in the Hall,” Spiderman on Broadway, Marijuanalogues with Tommy Chong, Larry King Standing Up and Mythbusters Live.

After interviewing Milan, The Charlotte Observer‘s Courtney Devores writes, “E.L. James’ 50 Shades of Grey was prime for lampooning. Maybe that’s why it took only weeks for producer Mike Mills and director Jim Millan (“Kids in the Hall”) to bring Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody to the stage.”

“It does and it doesn’t parallel the book,” Milan says. “A middle-aged woman is trying to write a fantasy book. It’s how it comes to life as she’s imagining it – that’s the fun of it.”  CLICK HERE to read the full interview.

This show is for mature audiences.
