The latest offering from Friends! The Musical Parody creators Bob and Tobly McSmith, based on the popular NBC sitcom The Office! A Musical Parody, "highlights a typical day at Scranton's third-largest paper company, Dunder Mifflin. For no logical reason, a documentary crew begins filming the lives of the employees in an immersive parody experience where audiences 'work' with all their favorite officemates."

The design team includes Assaf Gleizner (music), Josh Iacovelli (set design), Alex Stevens (lighting design, Matthew Fischer (sound design), and Dustin Cross (costume design).
