Friends Parody Musical Will Be There for You Through September
The production has extended its off-Broadway run yet again.
Friends! The Musical Parody has extended its off-Broadway engagement through September 2 at the St. Luke's Theatre. The musical was originally scheduled to run through December 31, 2017, and was first extended through March 31.
Friends! is the latest unauthorized parody of a hit TV show from Bob and Tobly McSmith, the creators of Bayside! The Saved by the Bell Musical, 90210! The Musical, and other such spoofs.
Directed by Paul Stancato, with music by Assaf Gleizner, the show will feature Seth Blum (90210! The Musical) as Chandler, Lisa Graye (Balloon Boy: The Musical) as Monica, Katie Johantgen (Lucky Stiff) as Phoebe, Patricia Sabulis (Ambition: The American Female Serial Killer Musical) as Rachel, Alan Trinca (Full House! The Musical) as Joey, and Landon Zwick (90210! The Musical) as Ross.
This spoof of the popular NBC sitcom Friends is described as follows: "It's a seemingly typical day at New York's only coffee shop, Central Perk, until an unexpected runaway bride with beautiful hair enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear."
