In 50 Shades! The Musical, a ladies' book club decides to read something a little racy.

Jan. 16-18: 50 Shades! The Musical
Starting tomorrow you can see 50 Shades! The Musical, a parody of the romance novel trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. This musical comedy opens with a ladies’ book club deciding to read the bestselling book. The audience then follows the group through their interpretation of the novel, a pseudo-literary journey complete with full dance numbers, 11 original songs and a live band. The show will be at Warner Theatre through Saturday and is recommended for ages 18 and up.

Jan. 15-Feb. 23: Tribes
You can see Tribes, a play by Nina Raine, at Studio Theatre through February 23. Directed by David Muse, the show centers on Billy, who was born deaf into a hearing family that raised him to lip read rather than learn sign language. But when he meets Sylvia, a spirited young woman who was raised by Deaf parents and is losing her hearing as an adult, he decides it’s time to “speak” on his own terms and let others work to understand him for a change. WAMU 88.5 is an official media sponsor of Tribes.
