Matthew Perry Will Be There For You... If You Live In New York

NOW can they do the reunion!?

Matthew Perry swapped yellow taxis for black cabs (OK, Uber) earlier this year when he took up residency in London to launch his new play, The End Of Longing, and missed the closest thing we'e had to a Friends reunion in ten years because of it (we're not bitter. No sir).

The Friends behemoth directed and starred in the tragi-comedy about an alcoholic falling in love with a prostitute - there are highs and lows, but it's kick-you-in-the-crotch-spit-on-your-neck-fantastic - and now it's headed to New York. 

Perry will make his New York City playwriting and stage acting debut next year, as part of MCC Theater's 30th anniversary season. it will begin previews 18th May 2017, with an opening set for 5th June 2017 and the last show on 24th June. Could we BE any more excited for him (or upset that he'll be moving back across the pond!?)

Matthew's expressed gratitude to Londoners for welcoming him:

And indignation at the not-so-friendly reception from some critics:

While you can still get tickets here in London, check out what we thought of the play and go see it for yourselves!
