Spank! The 50 Shades Parody is a "comedy-filled musical satire that captures all of the naughty fun of the book," and it opens in February at the Aladdin. [1,000 screaming emoticons]

Local actor Wade McCollum (you've seen him in Angels in America, Batboy: The Musical, and as the original Crumpet the Elf in PCS' Santaland Diaries) just landed the lead in a new touring production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert, kicking off in January. (I lost my virginity to that movie, which explains... NOTHING. IT EXPLAINS NOTHING.) Doesn't look like the full tour has been announced, so no word yet if it'll be hitting Portland.

In musical theater news people actually care about, Book of Mormon is still sold out.
