It’s a girls’ night out event that’s not to be missed! Get ready to laugh at this sexy, hysterical romp. Cuff Me features a score of pop hits (with altered lyrics) performed by a cast of four. The show jumps back and forth between two women reading the series with scenes of actual events from the novel…with a parody twist, of course. Don’t expect to see a literal translation of Fifty Shades on the stage—this show is all about sending up the mommy porn phenomenon with over-the-top performances, wild comedy and a slew of musical numbers that turn pop music on its head!Pineapple-Newspaper-Cuff-Me
