Magic Smoking Monkey has performed the good Star Wars
trilogy in an hour, and it has slogged through the entirety (sorta) of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings
films in just about 60 minutes. Its biggest challenge has arrived: Can the company lambaste all twelve hours of Game of Thrones's first season in one hour? Those monkeys will either do it, or you'll all die in the process. Expect something close to the sex and nudity you love about the original in Game of Thrones: The Parody!
, plus all the blood and more dragons than necessary. Shows are 8 and 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday (June 12 to 27) at the Regional Arts Commission (6128 Delmar Boulevard; 314-361-5664 or www.stlshakespeare.org
). Tickets are $10 to $15. Unlike most Magic Smoking Monkey shows, the early show is not toned down for young audiences -- heed that warning.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 & 10:30 p.m. Starts: June 12. Continues through June 27, 2015
