A Musical Has A Name at SDCC!

Are you a fan of HBO’s “Game of Thrones”? What about the Broadway hit musical “Hamilton”? What if, in some bizarro universe, the two were to meet, they had a few drinks, danced, went back to their apartment, f*$&’ed and had a baby. What would you get? “A Song of Nice Satire” of course! Well, aren’t you lucky that this universe is just that Bizzaro & Kinky because “Game of Thrones: The Musical- A Song of Nice Satire” is born and alive!

After a successful planned limited run in West(eros) Hollywood, the cast and crew are heading south to the Geek Mecca of what is know as the land of San Diego Comic Con and will be playing at the Tenth Avenue Arts Center for 8 performances from Thursday, July 20th to Sunday, July 23rd.

Tenth Avenue Arts Center
930 10th Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.
Tickets can be purchased at their official website: www.gotthemusical.com

Tickets start at $30 for general admission. For $49 you get a VIP ticket that includes a free drink at the bar, a signed poster and priority seating. For $99 you get their Platinum Experience, which includes an open bar all night, a signed poster, a digital download of the soundtrack, and a reserved seat. That’s probably one of the best deals you’re going to find for an evening of entertainment plus souvenirs at SDCC!

We got the chance to ask the producers and show-runners some questions about “GOT: The Musical-A Song Of Nice Satire”:

What can fans of Game Of Thrones Expect to see? 
We’ve got everything a GoT fan could want from Meereen to Winterfell. From a very meta Dothraki Love Song, to a tap dancing dire wolf, and a rousing final song appropriately titled ‘Heads Will Roll’, our show will satisfy the blood thirst that we’ve come to expect from GoT fans. Our show takes the grim and dark world of Westeros and puts a musical comedy twist on it. All the incest, violence and gore from the show… just more singing and dancing included.

Is this an all ages appropriate show? Rated G, R, NC-17?
The show is definitely not designed for young ones. Although we don’t have an age limitation, we advise parents that our show does contain violence, inferred sexual content, and a load of swearing. But generally our answer to parents when they ask this question is ‘If your child has seen all of Game of Thrones, then our show is no problem’.

Is this the same show that we would have seen in LA? 
For the most part, yes! Although we will be doing some last minute rewrites to incorporate jokes from the new season when it premieres on July 16th, 2017. Although we do have some improv elements to the show, so depending on what night you come you may see a different show in certain scenes.
 
What inspired you to create Game Of Thrones The Musical? 
Two years ago my producing partner Steven Brandon and I (Steven Parker) wrote and produced ‘Lost: The Musical’, a two and a half hour epic show that covered all six seasons of ‘Lost’ in one night. We were a huge success and because of that it was obvious what parody show we should tackle next. ‘Game of Thrones’ is the biggest show on television and is a ripe source for parody. We began work on the show in June 2016, began casting in November and had it up and running in February. We devoted every waking moment to this show for nine months and we’re extremely proud of what we’ve created.
 
What has been the overall reaction you’ve received about Game of Thrones:The Musical? 
Luckily for us, critics and audiences have overwhelmingly loved our show. We’ve received great praise for our 12 original songs, our hilarious actors and the sharp writing. I’m would attest that we currently have the best cast and crew in musical parody theatre, and I will fight anyone who says otherwise. I’m extremely proud of the people involved in this show and the talent they’ve brought to the table.
