Chris Grace grew up in Houston and therefore loves taco trucks. He originated the role of Christian Grey in 50 Shades! The Musical Parody at the Edinburgh Fringe and continued in the show all the way to off-Broadway. He regularly performs with Baby Wants Candy, Big Black Car, and Magic To Do. If you are quick with your remote, you can see him briefly in “That Awkward Moment.” The NY Times has said he is “often hilarious” and Time Out said he has a “decidedly imperfect body.”
