Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Gunther are back! FRIENDS! The Musical Parody is the hilarious new off-Broadway musical that lovingly lampoons TV’s Friends! With 90s tunes filling the theatre as you make your way from the bar to your seats, you’ll instantly “pivot” back in time to an era of signature haircuts, ugly naked guys and smelly cats.

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. In 2 acts, this show references most, if not all, of your favorite episodes from this beloved series. If you’re a fan (and even if you’re not), you are sure to enjoy this trip down memory lane. The six talented actors in the cast nail their impressions of each quirky character from Ross to Janice, from Phoebe to flashback Monica.
