It has been confirmed that the hit TV series, Friends, will be turned into an off-Broadway musical!
The show will be a parody of the original TV series, and will be centered around the six original characters.
All of the songs that have been written for the musical so far are some of the TV shows most memorable moments. Oh. My. God. It’s Janice! and We Were on a Break are just couple of names for the songs.
Unfortunately, because this is an off-Broadway show, it will mean that the venue will have a smaller capacity than the normal Broadway shows, seating just 130 people.
Tobly and Bob McSmith have created a number of musical parodies based on other hit US TV shows.
Tobly has been speaking with EW and has said, “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.
“Oh and there will be a smelly cat, there will be Janice, and there will be Fat Monica.
“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.”
