The Best Rock Opera was Canceled

Around the world, there are millions of fans of TV series phenomenon Game of Thrones based on series of fantasy novels “Song of Ice and Fire” by George R. R. Martin. Members of world-famous British rock band Coldplay are also big fans of the TV show. As a tribute to their beloved show, they have decided to create a musical about it. They were secretly working on it to create a full comedic musical show which will later be a presented on Broadway Stage.

Members of Coldplay have invited the stars of the famous TV show to be part of the musical, and many actors have joined the project. Even though some of the actors couldn’t sing, the band created several songs in the way that all the actors would be able to participate. Although several participants were skeptical of the idea of the comedic musical:

Mark Addy (Robert Baratheon) –
“When I first heard about it, I was skeptical about it, but now I’m completely convinced it is a horrible idea.”

Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen) –
“One word that springs to mind is Titanic, but not in terms of the movie, in terms of the unsuccessful boat.”

Although, after some time they have changed their ideas, and with other members, they actively engaged in the project. In the end, only one problem occurred: George R.R. Martin denies the band permission. No one knew what the reasons for his denial were, but the fact remains that the musical was canceled because of him.
