This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
This is absolutely BRILLIANT!
In fact, the cast of 50 Shades! The Musical Parody extended an open invite to the Nymphomaniac star to come see their play!
They figured that since Shia likes to get "rough in the theater" their play would be PERFECT for him… Seeing as it's a parody based on 50 Shades of Grey which is, ya know, full of S&M and bondage and all that stuff.
LOLz!! We hope Shia takes them up on their offer! It'd be perf for him!
