There’s no denying the cultural impact that Friends has had over the years. And now one of television’s most iconic friend groups is touring Australia and it’s bound to make your day, your month and even your year. After sold out shows in New York and Las Vegas, Friends! The Musical Parody is making its way down under for a national tour this year.
Friends! The Musical Parody
Join Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey and Phoebe as they hang out at Central Perk for a night of belly laughs and boisterous fun with this musical that lovingly pokes fun at the beloved show. Our favourite group of 20-something friends will take to the stage and attempt to navigate life, love and everything in between in a rib-tickling stage production.
And yes you can expect some of your favourite moments from the show to feature in the musical. Whether it’s Joey’s endearingly seductive “How You Doin” to Ross’s emphatic “We Were on a Break” to justify sleeping with someone other than Rachel, the musical plucks a number of iconic moments from the show in an uncensored romp on stage.
