CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE will present Heather Parcells and Diane Phelan, two of Broadway’s wittiest leading ladies, in their show “A Friendship Unhinged” on Sunday, May 19 a 7:00 PM. Parcells (Judy Turner in A Chorus Line) and Phelan (Cinderella in Into the Woods) take you on a duet-driven romp through the sweet dissonance of enduring friendship. Having met as mere babes on the first national tour of Thoroughly Modern Millie, the duo harmonize their way through the inescapable lunacy that accompanies a lasting friendship. The show is directed by Joe Langworth, with music direction by James Olmstead and arrangements by Richard Rockage. Tickets are $25-$55, in addition to a service charge and a two-item food and beverage minimum. A livestream option is available for $20 each. CHELSEA TABLE + STAGE is located at 152 West 26th Street.
