If you thought the Charleston Comedy Festival only happened in January, you’d be right — until now. Theatre 99 and City Paper’s little comedy fest is producing 50 Shades! The Musical on Wed. May 8 at the Charleston Music Hall.
This comedic parody of E.L. James’ famously smutty book has gotten rave reviews across the country. CNN called it “a titillating spectacle with plenty of sensuality. As erotic and decadent as you’d expect. A collaboration of comedy writers creating an ultra-spicy script!” Entertainment Weekly said it was “The perfect appetizer to the upcoming movie!”
