Musical Thrones: A Parody of Ice and Fire

Six seasons. Five actors. One dragon. Bloodthirsty musical theater comics leave no joke unturned in this hysterical parody of HBO’s “Game of Thrones!” From the crazed creators behind the Off-Broadway hit “Silence! The Musical” comes a sidesplitting theatrical send-up of your favorite and most despised characters. Sing and dance along with Daenerys, Tyrion, Joffrey, and more on a journey rife with (admittedly hilarious) violence, power struggles, manipulation, and – what else? – sex.

Rife with humor and political jabs, The Mountaintop explores what may have transpired in those overnight hours between M.L.K. Jr. and a seemingly inconsequential hotel maid. Now, 50 years after his death, glimpse the human side of a civil rights legend in this Olivier Award winner for Best New Play, presented in a unique radio-theater style.
