A Friends musical is coming to New York
Okay don’t freak out, but a musical based on Friends is coming.
It’s been thirteen years since everybody’s favourite sitcom came to an emotional end and with Jennifer Aniston shutting down rumours about a reunion, fans have been offered the next best thing… a stage show!
Well-loved characters Ross, Rachel, Joey, Chandler, Monica and Pheobe will all be returning for the theatre adaptation, as they “navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan.”
Although not directly endorsed by the creators of the original show, Friends! The Musical is still in good hands. The production is written by pop culture parody Kings Bob and Tobly McSmith, who are also the writers behind Broadway successes such as Bayside! the Musical!, 90210! The Musical!, Katdashians! The Musical!, and Full House! The Musical!. So don’t worry, we are sure they’ll do the show justice.
Fans have been given access to the song titles, and by the looks of it the stage show will be drawing on some of Friends‘ most memorable moments:
“The Only Coffee Shop in New York City”
“45 Grove Street – How Can We Afford This Place?”
“How you Doing, Ladies?”
“Hey Ugly Naked Guy Who Lives Across the Street!”
“We were on a Break!”
“I’m Gonna Hump U”
“Oh. My. God. It’s Janice!”
“Will They or Wont They”
“The Ballad of Fat Monica”
“Could I BE Anymore…..in Love with Monica”
“The One Where We Make a Million Dollars An Episode”
“We’ll Always Be There For You”
Tickets for Friends! The Musical! go on sale in June 2017, with the production opening sometime this autumn at the Triad Theater in New York.
