A Friends Musical Is Opening This Summer And We Don't Know What To Feel
The thing that NO ONE asked for is here at last: a musical parody of Friends, people!
As if Matthew Perry climbing out of the telly box and appearing in an actual West End play wasn't enough to confuse us, there's a Friends musical on the way. It's called 'Friends: The One Where They Sing' and will be performed in Chicago this Summer. As Friends purists, we just ain't so sure about this.
Here's the full cast... and all their understudies
Hmm. All seems pretty straight forward. But what did one poor guy do to get cast as Ugly Naked Guy AND fat Monica?!
This guy seems to be really regretting his decision:
You can watch a clip of the cast's table read here:
Last night we had the "Table Read" for the show. Here is the whole night boiled down to 15 seconds!
Speaking to Buzzfeed, the writer and director of the show, Eli Golden said: “Friends is that show I watch every night before I go to bed, so naturally, it means a lot to me”.
“I am a huge lover of musicals and really wanted to tell a great story while staying true to the source material. This is a musical for fans by the fans, both of Friendsand musicals in general.”
The songs include “Rachel’s Lament” (subtitled “I know I Can Do Better But, Meh”), Chandler and Joey’s duet, “More Than Just Friends We’re Roomies,” and “Chandler Bing,” sung by Chandler’s number one admirer, Janice.
It was about three years ago when Golden started writing songs for his “unauthorized musical parody” of the TV show. According to him, it includes everything fans love about the show, including Janice, Marcel the monkey, and Smelly Cat.
No one told us life was gonna be this way, and we don't know what to think. Would you go see it, to prolong the Friends magic, or do you think Friends should be left where it belongs, in the 00s with our dead Neopets, Sims and Tamagotchis? Let us know.
