*** Recommended *** An audience of enthusiasts was at the Apollo the other night to see “Thrones! The Musical Parody”, a mashup of all six seasons of “Game of Thrones”. In contrast to me (I’ve seen just enough episodes to get most of the references), these people knew what was coming. “Thrones!” is funny in and of itself, but if you’ve never seen the show, like my friend Nancy, it was mostly kind of dumb with some very funny parts. I give “Thrones! The Musical Parody” 3 Spotlights.
“Thrones! The Musical Parody” runs through November 13th at the Apollo Theatre, 2450 N. Lincoln Ave., Chicago. Running time is 1 hour, 30 minutes, with an intermission. Performances are Wednesday through Friday at 7:30 pm; Saturday at 6:00 and 9:30 pm; and Sunday at 4:00 pm. Tickets range from $39-$59. Paid parking is available under the El next to the Apollo. Street parking is also available. FYI (773) 935-6100 or www.apollochicago.com or www.ticketmaster.com.
