PIVOT Into April With Friends! The Musical Parody
Your favorite group of “Friends” are back—and this time, they’re live on stage! Friends! The Musical Parody is the hilarious new show that lovingly lampoon’s the award-winning, hit NBC show “Friends” that aired from 1994 until 2004. This brand-new musical plucks the best scenes from the series’ ten years and recreates the audience’s favorite moments in a fast-paced, uncensored Off-Broadway hit. With 11 original songs like “We were on a Break!” and “Oh. My. God. It’s Janice!” there’s no doubt that you’ll laugh, cry and perhaps even reach a state of Unagi.
It’s a seemingly typical day at New York’s only coffee shop, Central Perk, until a runaway bride with beautiful hair enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear. Featuring the six original “Friends” roles, plus some of the most memorable supporting characters, Friends! The Musical Parody follows your favorite group of 20-somethings as they navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan.
Written by comedy duo Bob and Tobly McSmith, Friends! The Musical Parody opened in New York City in late 2017 and extended its run twice before hitting the road for a National tour. The pair has also coined numerous other critically-acclaimed musical parodies including Bayside! The Saved by the Bell Musical (NY Times Critics’ Pick) and The Office! A Musical Parody, which is currently running Off-Broadway in New York City.
