Game of Thrones is one of the biggest shows on television today. How can we expect anything but success from a fantasy show that contains beloved character development, twisted storylines, gore, dragons and nudity? How could Game of Thrones be anymore perfect?
Spark Creative has the answer – turn it into a musical.
Thrones! The Musical is a phenomenal masterpiece. Returning to the Fringe this year after unsurprisingly selling out for the last two years, this extraordinary show is back with catchy, hilarious and inappropriate songs, quick, witty humour and many more spoilers.
This company of talented performers will keep you laughing from beginning to end. Spark Creative take being a Game of Thrones enthusiast to a whole different level, and they pay tribute to the series with such unique cleverness that it doesn’t even matter whether you follow the television series or not – after watching this parody musical you will no doubt end up becoming a fan.
The performance touches upon tiny references that will make any Game of Thrones supporter realise how accepting they are with the plot holes in the series. Updated every week in order to keep up with the new series, and with hidden jokes about current worldwide events embedded into the act too, it is safe to say that Spark Creative are back for another successful run at the Fringe.
With all round hilarity, this show will leave you wanting more. Whether you are a fan of the series, the books, or not at all this is a must see show.
