Friends! The Musical Parody is coming to off-Broadway
Lynn Shore Entertainment, Theater Mogul and McSmith Family Entertainment present Friends! The Musical Parody, created by Bob and Tobly McSmith and directed by Paul Stancato, at St. Luke's Theatre from October 13 through to December 31, 2017.
Synopsis: "Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Gunther are back! Friends! The Musical Parody is the hilarious new musical that lovingly lampoons TV's Friends! You'll laugh! You'll cry! You'll Unagi! Friends! The Musical Parody celebrates and pokes fun at the wacky misadventures of a group of 20-something pals as they navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan. 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."
Friends! The Musical Parody features a book & lyrics by Bob and Tobly McSmith, music by Assaf Gleizner and music direction by Kristen Lee Rosenfeld.
The off-Broadway cast includes Seth Blum (as Chandler), Lisa Graye (as Monica), Katie Johantgen (as Phoebe), Patricia Sabulis (as Rachel), Alan Trinca (as Joey), and Landon Zwick (as Ross).
Bob and Tobly McSmith's past parody creations have included 'Bayside! The Saved by the Bell Musical,' '90210! The Musical,' 'Full House! The Musical,' 'Showgirls! The Musical,' and 'Katdashians! The Musical!.'
