Game of Thrones parody musical headed to San Diego for Comic-Con
Winter is coming to San Diego — and so is musical theater.
The creators of Game of Thrones: The Musical announced Wednesday they’re bringing the parody show based on HBO’s hit fantasy series to San Diego to coincide with Comic-Con, with eight performances scheduled from July 20 to 23 at the nearby Tenth Avenue Arts Center.
Subtitled A Song of Nice Satire in a nod to GOT mastermind George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire novels, the musical puts a comedic spin on the power struggles of Westeros with songs such as “Hello From Winterfell,” “You Win or You Die,” and “Let’s Go to War.”
“We look forward to letting our dragons fly and taking the show to the magical kingdom of San Diego,” producer Steven Brandon said in the announcement.
Meanwhile, the real Game of Thrones will return for its highly anticipated seventh season July 16. As showrunner David Benioff recently told EW, “For a long time we’ve been talking about ‘the wars to come.’ That war is pretty much here.”
