SPANK! THE FIFTY SHADES OF PARODY is definitely not a production for everyone. Twenty-something women, with maybe a few 30s and 40s thrown in, who have read and love THE SHADES OF GREY trilogy, want to let loose, have a couple of glasses of wine and scream and yell, will have a great time. Others, like this old white guy who hasn’t read the books, should have been at home!
Things just got naughty in the sexy and hilarious new show at PlayhouseSquare’s Hanna Theater.

The show is billed as a musical but it shouldn’t be, considering it doesn’t have a lot of music or singing. It is a clever comedy that, for the most part, successfully taps into one of the hottest pop culture phenomenons out there today in ``literature.’’
Spank’s first act is hilarious and surprising but the second act grows tiresome and begins to lose its way.
