Prepare for some naughtiness. And don’t you dare say you didn’t know it was coming.
“Spank: The Fifty Shades Parody,” is a hilarious musical send-up of “Fifty Shades of Grey” — the runaway 2011 erotic bestseller (now a trilogy). The production, which clearly notes it is “not associated with, nor authorized by [British] author E.L. James or publisher Vintage Press,” premiered in Springfield, Ma. earlier this month. Written and directed by Jim Millan (whose credits include “the Kids in the Hall,” “Larry King Standing Up,” “Marijuanalogues with Tommy Chung” and “Mythbusters Live”), it is being co-produced by the Just for Laughs Group and Mills Entertainment.
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 as “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.
Not suitable for those under age 18, or who may be more shy or conservative.
