Heat up your Valentine's With 50 Shades! The Musical Parody


I never had the chance to read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy nor watch its movie adaptation (I saw the trailer). But I did not have second thoughts though to watch its stage version parody, 50 Shades! The Musical Parody (inspired by E.L. James’ erotic novel) last night February 10 on its preview night at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium in RCBC Plaza, Makati City. The show opens on February 12, 2016 at the Carlos P. Romulo Theater of RCBC Plaza in Makati.

Its been years since the last time I watched a musical or play (my last was Bona played by Eugene Domingo) and what a great way to resurrect the interest on theatre plays by watching an entertaining, laughter-filled, and titillating performing arts extravaganza "50 Shades! The Musical Parody." 

The musical opens with a ladies book club deciding to read Fifty Shades of Grey. Through their interpretation of the novel, the audience is led on a hilarious roller coaster ride of this unlikely bestseller. The show is full of dance numbers, 11 original songs and a live band backing the performance. Original songs include “How Much Can I Take?”, “I Don’t Make Love”, and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me”. 

My body heats up as I got engrossed with the engaging script of Albert Samuels (director of the Manila productioN) and the dazzling performances of foreign artists like Brenna Wahl, Chloe Williamson, Kaitlyn Frotton, Chris Hodgson, and Isaac Saleh. Filipino stage actors Bituin Escalante, Lorenz Martinez, and George Schulze also provided excellent character portrayals that can't help but submit to their desires.

If you're into unconventional celebration of Valentine's day, this is a perfect alternative way to enjoy this special day. 

After watching it, I felt that the hole within me was filled.
