They'll Still Be There for You! FRIENDS: THE MUSICAL PARODY Pivots its Way Off-Broadway Through Summer

You've got a friend! Seven actually, as Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Gunther will be there for you through the summer! FRIENDS! The Musical Parody, the unauthorized parody of the hit TV show by the creators of Bayside! The Saved by the Bell Musical and 90210! The Musical, produced by Lynn Shore Entertainment, Theater Mogul and McSmith Family Entertainment announced today that the box office has taken in over one million dollars in tickets sales and that a new block of tickets is now on sale. Performances began on October 13, 2017 at St. Luke's Theatre (308 West 46th Street - between 8th & 9th Avenues) 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. Tickets are now on sale through September 2, 2018.

"Without a doubt this has been our most successful parody musical," says creators Tobly and Bob McSmith. "We were thinking of renaming it "The One Where We Made One Million Dollars," and based on the infamous pay-per-episode of the original TV cast, we can finally afford to have David Schwimmer in our show for 22 minutes! Call us David!"

"It's always nice to produce a show that is full of laughs, great music, amazing acting and singing, and full of wonderful people," stated producer Lynn Shore. "But, it's especially nice when it's successful. Cheers to our entire team and here's to many more shows!"
