Off-Broadway 'Friends' musical opening in New York this fall


UPI News Service, 04/13/2017 

"Friends" is being turned into an off-Broadway musical that is set to hit New York this fall.

Titled "Friends! The Musical," the unofficial stage play comes from creators Bob and Tobly McSmith who previously helmed musical parodies based on "Saved by the Bell," "Full House" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

"Could we BE more excited about the chance to parody such an important TV show?!" Tobly said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

"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 'Beverly Hills, 90210.' Not only do we poke fun and celebrate the show, we also get some jokes in about the actor's lives, including their hefty salaries and personal lives," Tobly continued.

"Oh and there will be a smelly cat, there will be Janice, and there will be Fat Monica," he added.

"We want all the alumni of 'Friends' to come to the show and possibly be in it for a night or two - our first call is to the agent of Marcel the Monkey."

"Friends! The Musical" will feature songs such as "The Only Coffee Shop in New York City," "45 Grove Street - How Can We Afford This Place?" and "We Were on a Break."

The play will open at the Triad Theatre in the fall with tickets going on sale in June.
