So, for the benefit of everyone, the 50 Shades of Grey is a best-seller novel by E.L. James and has sold over 125 million copies worldwide. The movie received mixed reactions globally but became a controversial yet a blockbuster movie of 2015, nevertheless. The story revolves around Christian Grey, a successful and wealthy entrepreneur and Anastasia “Ana” Steele is a 21-year-old college senior attending Washington State University.

The two became sensual and sexual after Ana interviewed Mr. Grey.

Through their interpretation of the novel, the audience is led on a hilarious roller coaster ride of this unlikely best-seller. The show is full of dance numbers, 11 original songs and a live band backing the performance.
