50 Shades! The Smash Hit Parody at Bally’s Las Vegas – Review
I have been a huge fan of the Fifty Shades trilogy since 2012, I’ve read the books and seen the movie more times than I probably should admit to. So when I was given the chance to see 50 Shades! The Smash Hit Parody at Bally’s Las Vegas, I was excited and couldn’t wait to see the show and let me just say that I was not disappointed when I left. This show is definitely a parody, as the actors do a great job of poking fun at the characters in the books and the book’s cult like fan base. I never imagined that I would have laugh as much as I did during this show. The best way for me to describe 50 Shades! parody would Fifty Shades of Grey book meets Saturday Night Live skit meets Las Vegas show add in some hilarious original songs and you have 50 Shades! parody. It is definitely funny, witty, sometimes shocking, and a little bit racy but it’s a great show considering the 69 minute run time. The show kept to the book’s original storyline but just twisting the character to a comedic side.
From the opening with the 3 housewives’ book club meeting and deciding to read Fifty Shades of Grey and then the housewives brings the characters from the book to life on stage. The entire cast is amazing and very talented, I was really impressed by each of the actors’ vocal and acting ability. Especially the actor who plays Christian, he was not what I expect to see but then again since it is a parody, he was exactly who should be Christian and he was amazing. I love the Windows Showroom at Bally’s, it is small and intimate so no matter where you sit, you are guaranteed to have a great seat plus you get to pick your seat for the show too. I would recommend arriving at least 30 minutes early to the show so you can have a chance to pick a seat.
So who would I recommend to see the show?
If you haven’t read the books or seen the movie, you should see 50 Shades!. Don’t worry you will be able to laugh at everything in the show.
If you have read the books and/or seen the movie, you should see 50 Shades!. You will be able to pick up the subtle jokes and references that the show is making fun of.
Even if you hated the books or movie, you should still see 50 Shades!. You will enjoy the show as long as you like to laugh.
This show is for anyone over 18, who has a sense of humor and doesn’t mind raunchy sexual language and jokes then you will enjoy this show. I was surprised by the age range of the audience in attendance from young to old, all laughing and enjoying themselves. This show would be perfect for a girl’s night out or a date night as there were quite a few guys in the audience who were laughing just as much as the ladies. I would definitely see this show again just to see one of the most stand out moments for me from the show “Christian Grey workout” which was hands down my favorite from the show.
Enjoy the show, you will definitely be dying from laughter and don’t forget to let me know what you thought.
