Graeme of Thrones Closing (Theater and Galleries) New Review (Theater and Comedy) Recommended The Short List (Theater)

When: Tuesdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 13 2016

Straight from London’s West End, this Game of Thrones parody uses a low-budget production to deliver high-quality humor for both aficionados of the HBO show and uninitiated viewers like me. The Graeme of the title, played by a bumbling and endearing Ali Brice, is looking to impress his audience of high-powered investors (Andrew Lloyd Webber himself is rumored to be in attendance) with a taste of his stage re-creation of Thrones. In partnership with former classmate Bryony, played by a fearless and committed Libby Northedge, and friend Paul, played by a versatile and goofy Michael Condron, Graeme spoofs the Seven Kingdoms with seemingly unimpressive props stretched wildly past their potential. Northedge’s “high art” scenes, including some inspired physical work with ham and confetti, are especially memorable. —Marissa Oberlander
