A musical based on TV's Friends will play Off Broadway this fall

Tickets for Friends! The Musical! go on sale in June for performances this fall at NYC's Triad Theater.

According to Digital Spy, the show will be off-broadway and will open sometime in Autumn, but none of the original writers or producers have anything to do with it. The Musical!, Katdashians! The Musical!, and Full House!

The show's been written by Bob and Toby McSmith, who have created Saved By The Bell, Kardashians and 90210 parody musicals in the past, so we've got high hopes.


Judging by these song titles published by the Huffington Post (below), it's going to be more parody than tribute.

"We were on a Break!".

Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Joey and Pheobe will be singing their hearts out, as they "navigate the pitfalls of work, life and love in 1990s Manhattan".


The new production follows an unofficial musical that hit the Chicago stage previous year, and, while both projects are not officially affiliated to the original series, huge interest is set to circulate around the new project as it did in Chicago.

Could I BE Any More... in Love with Monica?

Apart from the theatre, talk of a Friends reunion movie resurfaced earlier this week as Phoebe actress Lisa Kudrow spoke out.


Songs in the musical include "How you doing, ladies?".
