PHOTO EXCLUSIVE: "Sunbathing, Sutton and Inspiration from Jonathan Taylor Thomas!" A Three-Show Day at 50 Shades! The Musical With Tim Murray
01 Jul 2014
50 Shades! The Musical, a parody of the best-selling book series, plays midtown's Elektra Theatre. Company member Tim Murray documented a particularly busy three-show day at work and play with his castmates.

The cast comprises David Andino (The Buddy Holly Story), Kaitlyn Frotton (Scab), Chris Grace ("That Awkward Moment"), Adam Hyndman ("The Sing Off"), Tim Murray ("White House Down"), Amber Petty (voice of Sirius/XM's Radio Margaritaville), Casey Rogers (Catch Me If You Can), Alec Varcas (Spamalot), Ashley Ward (Baby Wants Candy) and Chloe Williamson (Save The Date).
Directed by Al Samuels and Rob Lindley, the musical features a book by Al Samuels, Amanda Blake Davis, Emily Dorezas, Jody Shelton, Ashley Ward and Dan Wessels, and music and lyrics by Amanda Blake Davis, Jody Shelton, Ashley Ward, Al Samuels and Dan Wessels.
Here's how the show is billed: "50 Shades! the Musical - The Original Parody opens with a trio of girlfriends setting aside staid book club fare in favor of a sexier sort of page-turner. Interest piqued, they devour the novel while the notorious characters', Anastasia and Christian, delicious affair comes to life before their eyes. The musical is an uproarious rollercoaster ride through this unlikely bestseller. The show features a sassy original score with musical influences ranging from traditional musical theater to R&B to Gilbert and Sullivan, including the provocative 'I Don’t Make Love...' and 'There's a Hole Inside of Me.'"
The production has set and costume design by John Dunnett, lighting design by Herrick Goldman, choreography by Mindy Cooper and sound design by Matt Kraus. Joy Dewing is the casting director, and Michael Thomas Murray is musical director.
