Kink with a Wink: “50 Shades! The Musical” Milks Its Double Entendres Like a Herd of Holsteins

“50 Shades! The Musical,” playing two shows nightly through Saturday in Raleigh’s A.J. Fletcher Opera Theatre as part of the Broadway Series South series, milks its double entendres like a herd of Holsteins. These laugh-out-loud 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. performances deliver kink with a wink. If 50 Shades! were a motion picture, it would be R rated (for strong language throughout, heavy drinking, pervasive sexual innuendo, and simulated sex).
