Not even the actors know what’s going to happen when diving into this play: a collection of the sexiest scenes in the canon. Intoxicating, unsettling and often giggle-inducing: 50 Shades of Shakespeare is a raucous evening of sex, love and really good Shakespeare. A huge gender-bending hit at the 2016 Hollywood Fringe Festival, you can also catch the play annually if you happen to be in Chicago around Valentine’s Day.
“… an hour with these four and their barmy fivesome with the Bard might just get you in the mood to—how to say this delicately— put some wood in the O.” – Chicago Theater Beat
“one of the funniest and strangely erotic sex scenes I have ever seen on a Chicago stage… If you are looking for an hour of goofy fun with both a classical unpinning and a happy ending, this show is for you” – Chicago Stage Standard
