DC Theatre Scene is giving away a pair of tickets to opening night of Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody Wednesday, May 22nd at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD. Spank! is here for 6 performances, ending May 25th.
“For us it was great fun to parody the book,” recalled Jim Millan, head writer for the show. “As soon as you say the plot – a 28 year-old perfect-looking billionaire falls for a 21 year-old virgin, there’s comedy right there.”
“We are proud of the sense in the show that anything could happen. The audience sees the author creating the characters and their sex fantasy. Because she’s creating in front of them, the audience also gets to witness ideas she has that don’t make it into the book.” Pop culture references are tossed into the mix, as well as well-placed musical numbers. “We try to surprise people with the musical parodies we do. Hugh pulls out a guitar and the audience thinks it’s going to be a certain kind of song.” Case in point: Willy Wonka’s delightful “Pure Imagination” becomes an ode to the billionaire’s kinky little get-away, “Room of Sexy Domination.”
