SPANK!: The Fifty Shades Parody is coming! SPANK!: The Fifty Shades Parody
Not familiar with this show?
SPANK! is musical comedy described as “S&M meets SNL” by Suzanne Sole, who plays the narrator E.B. Janet in the show. It’s based on a wildly popular (and risqué) book series, but in interviews, cast members say you don’t need to have read the books to enjoy the performance. It helps, you get a little extra out of “Spank,” but it’s not necessary.
In addition to Sole, the cast includes Alice Moran as Tasha Woode (the Anastasia Steele-like character whom Moran describes as “a 10-year-old boy in the body of a 22-year-old”) and Patrick Whalen as Hugh Hanson (the Christian Grey-like character).
Books aren’t the only thing parodied in SPANK! – songs get a sexy makeover, too. You’ll never hear Willy Wonka sing "Pure Imagination" the same way again after hearing "Room of Sexy Domination." SPANK! will involve some audience participation, as well, but don’t worry, no one needs to sign an non-disclosure agreement.
What do you think? Sound like a fun time? Go gather some friends for a fun girl’s night out! And don’t forget, come early to enjoy some pre-show cocktails and stay late to get your photo with Whalen.
