Friends! The Musical Parody
Time Out says
The One Where They Sing and Dance
Update 15/06/21: Friends! The Musical Parody has rescheduled its Melbourne season to November 23 - December 12 following Victoria's fourth lockdown. Ticket holders will be contacted.
If it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, you might want to consider spending some time with your favourite sextet. If you've recently binged every episode of Friends but are still craving some nourishment from Central Perk, here's the perfect opportunity.
This musical parody of one of the world's favourite sitcoms is coming to Melbourne after playing for almost a year in New York, around the US an then being delayed more than a year due to the events of 2020 (and 2021). All your favourite twenty-somethings will be on stage, as they try to negotiate life, love and work in New York in the 1990s.
The question on everybody's lips of course is who's playing who: who will capture the neuroticism of Ross, the quirkiness of Phoebe or the unyielding sarcasm of Chandler? Friends! The Musical Parody has now announced its cast which features Belinda Jenkin as Phoebe, Stefanie Jones as Monica, Sarah Krndija as Rachel, Joseph Spanti as Joey, Tyran Stig as Ross and Rowan Witt as Chandler.
The musical was penned by Bob and Tobly McSmith, who have a long track record of lovingly spoofing '90s TV shows, recreating TV's most memorable moments and creating soundtracks that bring something new to the stories we already know and love. And it goes without saying, but this is an unauthorised parody.
Tickets for the Friends! The Musical Parody Melbourne season are on sale now.
