FRIENDS! THE MUSICAL PARODY Will Play Final Performance July 22

Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Gunther will only be there for you until July 22, 2018 when FRIENDS! The Musical Parody, the unauthorized parody of the hit TV show will play its final performance. When FRIENDS ends its successful run, it will have played 17 previews and 213 regular performances.

Performances began on October 13, 2017 at St. Luke's Theatre and the show officially opened on November 2, 2017. Originally announced as a limited engagement through December 31, 2017, it was extended through March 31, 2018 and then again through September 2, 2018.

"It's been a great ride with an amazing group of actors, band members, and crew," says Lynn Shore. "Thank you to all the FRIENDS fans who came out and helped make this show a success. 220 performances is no small feat and we couldn't be any prouder of what we've created and accomplished. Keep an eye out for our North American tour beginning Fall 2018."

FRIENDS! The Musical Parody is the hilarious new musical that lovingly lampoons TV's Friends! 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. It's a seemingly typical day at New York's only coffee shop, Central Perk, until an unexpected runaway bride with beautiful hair enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear. Get ready to PIVOT to St Luke's Theatre!
