Thrones! The Musical: Edinburgh Fringe 2018 interview

Albert Samuels provides the As to our Qs.

Hello. How are you today?

Given that I’m currently sweltering in the US summer heat in a country buckling under the yoke of a psychotic leader who denies the existence of global warming…not bad.

At this stage, how closely does your programme blurb match the content of your show?

It’s 1% of how incredible the actual show is. And the blurb is 150% better than any other blurb. So that means the content of our show is ….a lot of % better than the blurb.

One thing we don’t mention is that given Season 8 of Game of Thrones is not airing for another 45 years (ok.. 8 months), this may be your only chance to see Jaimie bonk Cersei for a while.

Who are you sharing a flat with and how will you help each other survive the month?

I am in a flat with 10 other actors in the show and our two musical directors. We help each other survive by coining clever and/or adorable names for the mice in the flat.

Any shows you’re excited about seeing?

Daniel Kitson

Other than the great shows, what else are you looking forward to about your trip to Edinburgh this year?

Arthur’s Seat, Forbidden Planet, Piemaker.

The Fringe’s tagline this year is ‘Into The Unknown’. What do people not know about you?

I have an MBA from Stanford University. I may be poor, but I understand quite well the economic factors that got me here.

Here’s a space to write about anything you want. Go for it.

I have been to Edinburgh Fringe 12 times and never been to Edinburgh Castle. But I’ve been to that little pizza slice stand located deep in the bowels Cowgate that’s open for about 8 minutes in the middle of the night about 76 times.
