‘Game of Thrones’ rock musical coming to off-Broadway

Winter is coming to off-Broadway.

A “Game of Thrones” parody musical recounting the epic first season of the hit HBO show is coming to the Jerry Orbach Theater Oct. 10-29.

“Game of Thrones: The Rock Musical — An Unauthorized Parody” will feature 13 original songs about characters Ned Stark, Khal Drogo and his Khaleesi, Daenerys, and the beginning of the battle for the Iron Throne.

The musical first debuted in Los Angeles in February before moving to San Diego to a sold out run.

The creative team behind the spoof, Steven Christopher Parker (director/writer/producer), Steven Brandon (writer/producer) and Erin Stegeman (music writer/director/producer), has also launched parody musicals for “Lost” and “Once Upon a Time.” They are joined by Ace Marrero, who is co-music producer and director.

The cast includes Milo Shearer (Ned Stark), Mandie Hittleman (Daenerys Targaryen), Drew Boudreau (Tyrion Lannister), Ace Marrero (Khal Drogo) and Erin Stegeman (Cersei Lannister).

Neither HBO nor writer George R.R. Martin — author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” series of fantasy novels, which “Game of Thrones” is based on — are involved in the project.

“Game of Thrones: The Rock Musical” will join a “Friends” musical parody premiering on off-Broadway this year at the Triad Theater from Oct. 13 to Dec. 31.

QUIZ: How many dead ‘Game of Thrones’ characters can you name?

Parody musicals have been career-launchers for some. Actor Darren Criss became popular by starring in and writing the music for 2009’s “A Very Potter Musical,” a “Harry Potter” parody.
