The risqué book series was a runaway success; now the hilariously naughty parody of Fifty Shades of Grey prepares to dominate willing audiences in New England. Written and directed by Jim Millan, whose credits include The Kids in the Hall, Larry King Standing Up, Marijuanalogues With Tommy Chong and Mythbusters Live, this fun show captures all the silly absurdity of the novel, with characters brought to life via sexy musical numbers. Think part SNL, part Chippendales — and you don’t need to have read the book to get the jokes.

The show is not recommended for children.

A Little History about the book

For the uninitiated, “Fifty Shades of Grey,” set primarily in Seattle, follows the relationship between a 22-year-old college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a tremendously wealthy young business magnate, Christian Grey, with extreme tastes in sex that include bondage, dominance and submission and sado-masochism. The book, which reportedly has surpassed “Harry Potter” to become the fastest-selling paperback of all time), has attracted an unusually large number of female readers in the thirtysomething age bracket, and has been dubbed “Mommy Porn.”

In a prepared statement, producer Michael Mills described the parody – which began its life in Springfield, MA by the way – is “a laugh-filled evening that captures all the escapist fun and absurdity of the novel” by way of sexy musical numbers in the style of “SNL” and the Chippendales.

And just to be clear, the production clearly notes it is “not associated with, nor authorized by [British] author E.L. James or publisher Vintage Press.”

The Wilbur Theatre is located at 246 Tremont StreetBoston, MA 02116, and is served by both the green and orange MBTA lines.
