Exciting News! Television Show, Friends Is Heading to Broadway!
Alright it might technically be off-Broadway...but that doesn’t lessen the excitement! That’s right everyone, the show that made us laugh, cry, sing a song about a cat, is heading to the stage! The hit NBC show that stole fans hearts aired its final episode 13 years ago. Now, fans are getting the opportunity to relive the show through the form of Friends! The Musical!
Friends! The Musical will be an unofficial sort of parody musical written by Bob and Tobly McSmith. If anyone is unaware of these names, these two were also behind the parody musicals of Saved by the Bell and Full House. I personally have seen the Saved by the Bell parody Bayside by the duo, and if Friends is anything like that one, it should be pretty killer.
Tolby is beyond excited for this adaption expressing to Entertainment Weekly
"Could we BE more excited about the chance to parody such an important TV show?! It only makes sense to set our sights on the hit TV show Friends after creating parody musicals about Saved by the Bell, Full House, and Beverley Hills, 90210. Not only do we poke fun and celebrate the show, we also get some jokes in about the actor's lives."
There will be no shortage of favorites at the show including Janice, smelly cat and some wonderfully entitled tunes including “How you doing, Ladies?” and “Will They or Won’t They”. No official date has been announced for the show yet but tickets will start going on sale this coming June. Check out the website below and get your tickets before they sell out!
