Dragon fire under the king's ass
A fantasy middle ages - in the end they are all dead - Musical

What to do when your girlfriend has just been dumped by her great love? Should she be comforted? Stand by her? Or watch the final of Game of Thrones together? Maybe she finds encouragement in murder, inbreeding and executions?

But what if she has never seen Game of Thrones? Not watching is out of the question. So there's only one thing to do: act. Eight seasons in two hours. Horses, swords, white zombies and green fire. And since there's none in the living room, you just take what you find.

But how do you make a kite in a hurry?

Jon Snow, Hodor, Daenerys the Khal, Jaime Lannister, and Arya Stark sing, dance, and murder like crazy. It's an evening where the musical takes the path of shame - Shame, Shame, Shame! - must go.

In 53 roles altogether: Caroline Frank, Ariana Schirasi-Fard, Julia Edtmeier, Gerhard Kasal, Peter Lesiak and Georg Leskovich.

Program and cast

Kabarett Simpl

The "Simpl" in the Wollzeile in the first district of Vienna.
The Simpl is a cabaret opened in 1911 as beer cabaret Simplicissimus in Vienna-Innere Stadt. In the 1920s and 30s he produced cabaret greats such as Fritz Grünbaum and Karl Farkas. Until today it is one of the most successful and most important cabaret stages in Vienna. Name, lettering and the red bulldog refer to the Munich satirical magazine Simplicissimus, founded in 1896.

Opened on 25 October 1911 as the beer cabaret Simplicissimus, it was soon referred to by the Viennese as "Der Simpl". A colourful programme of chansons, piano improvisations and artistic performances etc. made the theatre one of the most popular cellar theatres in Vienna.
