Thrones! The Musical Parody
Time Out says
This musical sendup refuses to bend the knee to coherence
The night is dark, and full of... jazz hands. A far cry from Westeros’s blood-soaked wedding venues and questionable leadership choices, Thrones! The Musical Parody is a retelling of the epic story you know in a tone you don’t.
It follows a group of Game of Thrones fans as they attempt to cheer up their friend, Linda (the only one among them who hasn’t seen the show) in the wake of her divorce by re-enacting all eight seasons – yup, it will include the final one! Shenanigans unfold as the group works through the overarching story and a cast of over 40 characters, singing catchy original showtunes with titles including ‘Stabbin'’, 'Hold the Door' and ‘You Know Nothing’.
The show arrives brandishing five-star reviews from the Edinburgh Festival, where it has played for four consecutive years. It's coming to Melbourne as part of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, from March 26.
Luckily, you don't have to pay the iron price – tickets start at $49 per person.
