Game of Thrones: The Musical! – A Song of Nice Satire

We visited as a guest of the venue

My husband is a huge fan of Game of Thrones (as in obsessed).   I’m not allowed to watch the show with him because I’m a newbie that ask way too many lame questions and basically take the joy of watching the show away from him.  He has his routine of recording Eastern Time so that by 8 o’clock he has the entire downstairs to himself without interruption.  If by any chance I need to grab something from downstairs, rules have been placed that I cannot enter the GoT realm until he deems it okay.  It’s pretty intense so I avoid the situation completely so that our marriage stays intact.  So when the opportunity to preview Game of Thrones: The Musical! – A Song of Nice Satirecame up I knew that I better say yes or my life would have mirrored season 3 episode 9.

We drove up to Los Angeles to attend the press preview at the Macha Theatre.  I had never been to the Macha Theater and in my opinion is it the best theater ever.  The Macha is a 99 seat theater which means every seat is an awesome seat.  The intimate venue adds to much more to the show.  It’s like watch the musical in 3D without the glasses.

Having a venue like this for an exceptionally entertaining show like GoT: The Musical was a brilliant collaboration. The creators of Lost: The Musical and Once Upon a Time: The Rock Opera teamed up once again for their big return to the stage with Game of Thrones: The Musical! – A Song of Nice Satire.  This show has it all, from tap-dancing dire wolves to a hip-hop number by Tyrion as well at 12 original songs that have the audience laughing in their seats.

GoT fans can sit back and watch George R.R. Martin narrates the show from the balcony as his munches on a bag of chips.  As you watch the beloved Stark family  verbal abuse Jon Snow, you can’t help but also scream profanities towards the broken warrior who leaves his family behind to help build a wall to keep the unwanted out.  That’s right the creators also threw in some current political jabs to round out the shows dark humor.

Regardless of being a fan of GoT or not, this is a show that you cannot miss.  Performances are split between two groups of actors, several of whom play multiple roles in the show.

The House Targaryen cast performs Saturday and Sunday evenings, while the House Lannister cast performs Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Tickets are $30 online and $35 at the door.  Due to the size of the venue, I highly recommend buying tickets in advance and also be aware that seating is general, so be sure to get there a bit early to be up close and personal.  Macha Theatre is located at 1107 N. Kings Rd West Hollywood CA  90069.  For more information about Game of Thrones: The Musical! – A Song of Nice Satire or to buy tickets please visit their website at www.gotthemusical.com .
