'50 Shades' parody to open Feb. 3 at Bally's in Las Vegas

A spoof of the erotic best-seller takes to the Bally's stage Feb. 3 in "50 Shades! The Musical Parody."

A Las Vegas theater promises to be hot and steamy, even in February, as the latest spinoff of “50 Shades of Grey” hits the stage.

“50 Shades! The Parody” opens Feb. 3 at Bally’s in Las Vegas. It’s a pared-down version of “50 Shades! The Musical Parody” which has played to good reviews around the country.

The New York Times praised the production, a satirical spin on the best-selling book “50 Shades of Grey,” by E.L. James, calling it “an exuberant takeoff [that] handily delivers the goods.” The New York Daily News described it as “lowbrow, risqué humor” that is “filthy and funny.”

The producers have modified the musical to fit the 90-minute slot, with no intermission, which has become the norm for Las Vegas shows. The original score includes songs such as “Open Your Book” and “I Don’t Make Love.”

Tuesday performances will be at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. in the suitably intimate Windows Showroom. A single 7:30 p.m. performance will be staged Wednesdays through Sundays.

Tickets, $76 and $92, including taxes and fees, are available through Ticketmaster or by calling (702) 777-2782.

Fans craving even more raunch may be sated by the movie “50 Shades of Grey.” It opens Feb. 13.
