Spank! The Fifty Shades Parody The Short List (Theater) Recommended Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Wednesdays-Sundays. Continues through Dec. 16 2012

This musical parody of E.L. James's kinky 50 Shades trilogy finds comedic gold in one simple fact: the books that have moms everywhere begging their husbands to tie them to the bedposts are basically peddling derivative smut. The laugh-out-loud show points out that innocent heroine Anastasia Steele could've stepped right out of the Twilight books, and reclusive billionaire Christian Grey is Batman minus the pointy ears. The spot-on, interactive production revolves around E.B. Janet, a wordsmith with a brazen libido and a small vocabulary, who decides to bang out a chardonnay-fueled sex fantasy while her husband and kids are away. Amanda Barker is vivacious as E.B. —Marissa Oberlander
