Winter Is Coming is a ludicrous take on the popular TV series,
With a Summer Heights High-style bitchy cast full of extreme thespians, this is a show that takes a tongue in cheek poke at theatre folk and musicals.
With a Summer Heights High-style bitchy cast full of extreme thespians, this is a show that takes a tongue in cheek poke at theatre folk and musicals. Vince Milesi stands out as a confident and often very funny performer, leading the ensemble through his wild demands and diva tantrums. Including some wild references, from the obvious Lannister versus Stark gags, to Narnia and Harry Potter, this is a show for the geeks in us.
Unfortunately there is a definite lull in the middle of the performance, and while the concept and the references are funny, by the end the whole thing grows a bit thin. Not all of their jokes work quite as well as they think they do, and though this cast runs a tight, upbeat show with some big laughs, they can be guilty of milking a joke further than it can go. It’s also a relatively niche idea (I know, I know, Game of Thrones is a crossover hit, but it’s not for everyone) and if you’re not au fait with the show, then this might all seem a bit too weird. But for the GoT fan club this is definitely worth a watch.
