TV's favorite hit drama re-imagined for the stage as a parody rock musical! An uproarious musical comedy parody of HBO's tentpole drama series, Game of Thrones: The Rock Musical follows the saga of Eddard 'Ned' Stark as he battles tap dancing direwolves, an evil inbred prince and a smattering of other characters too hot and raunchy for network television. Will Ned climb his way to the Iron Throne? Or will he lose his head in the process?
Go back to the beginning and re-visit all your favorite characters and the ones you love to hate. Re-live Jaime pushing Bran out the window, Khal Drogo learning how to love, and do you remember when everyone hated Jon Snow and Sansa actually wanted to marry Joffrey?
