We may be some time (and some serious career declines) away from a Friends reunion, but that doesn’t mean there are no Friends-related projects for fans to get excited over – because a parody musical is on its way.
Called Friends! The Musical! (and written by Tobly and Bob McSmith) the project is set to run in New York City later this year, 13 years after the original series ended, and features a collection of gently mocking musical numbers sure to warm the cockles of any fan’s heart.
To get a taste of exactly what those songs might be like, take a look at the official tracklist released hinting at which elements of the classic sitcom will be spoofed onstage.

The One Where We Make a Million Dollars An Episode
We’ll Always Be There For You
Frankly we can’t wait for the Janice number and “Will They or Won’t They” is sure to be a banger, and if RadioTimes.com had a New York bureau we’d be snapping up tickets in a flash.
As it is, we’ll have to leave it to our Stateside friends to get involved when they go on sale this June, with the musical starting at The Triad Theatre this autumn. And given the fact that the McSmiths (who have previously brought musicals based on Keeping up with the Kardashians, Saved by the Bell and 90210 to the stage) sometimes get original cast members from the shows they’re spoofing to appear, we’d say this will be a hot ticket for any 80s or 90s kid worth their salt.
