Weekend Best Bets: A Girls Night Out, Wine & Seafood, Zumba And More

Perfect for a Girls Night Out

Perfect for a Girls Night Out

The weekend starts early in Boca/Delray. So take a deep breath, there’s a ton of stuff to do starting tonight.

A Great Girls Night Out

Did you like the book “50 Shades of Grey?” We didn’t read it, but we hear it’s something else.

On Nov. 7 and 8, the Crest Theatre at the Delray Center for the Arts at Old School Square will present a spoof on the cultural phenomenon entitled “Cuff Me.”

Tickets are $40 and show time is 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday Night.

“CUFF ME” is the unauthorized, hilarious parody of the Fifty Shades of Grey bestseller. This highly entertaining performance dives into a sexually charged romance in true satirical fashion. 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 phenomenon with over-the-top performances, wild comedy and a slew of musical numbers that turn pop music on its head.

We await your reviews.
