FRIENDS! The Musical Parody is the comedic musical that lovingly pokes fun at TV’s Friends, celebrating the adventures of your favorite group of 20-something friends as they navigate the pitfalls of work, life, and love in 1990s Manhattan.

It’s a typical day at New York’s only coffee shop, Central Perk, until an unexpected runaway bride enters the picture and kicks the whole gang out of second gear! The new musical recreates our favorite moments from all 10 years of Friends through an uncensored, fast-paced, music filled romp. Recommended for mature audiences.

Although I’m one of the few Americans who didn’t watch “Friends” during its ten-year run on network TV, I still enjoyed Friends! The Musical Parody now running as a guest production at the Kirk Douglas. Complete familiarity with the sitcom didn’t prove necessary, especially not when the characters in the revue---Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey---are lampooned time and time again in repetitive fashion.

...since I was not familiar with Friends per se, I was not as appreciative of the production as the audience was.  If you were/or still are a fan of Friends, I recommend this spoof for your enjoyment by a talented company.

In sum, this makes for a strangely nostalgic, often clever, sometimes hilarious look back at a series that logic says wouldn’t have lasted a season. And yet, some of us watched all of them.

Even if, like me, you have never seen an episode of the TV series, no doubt the fame of the real-life actors on the show, each of whom celebrate their fame in song during "The One Where We Make a Million Dollars an Episode," makes this show an exceedingly fun time thanks to the skill of the talented, triple-threat cast. It will assist you to have a friend or two with you in the audience to fill you in on references which non-fans will not understand.

If you’re one of the tens of millions who found themselves tuning in to Friends week after week, year after year, or if you ended up discovering it on DVD, or you’re watching it right now on Netflix, Friends! A Musical Parody provides moments of nostalgic fun assuming you’ve got the bucks.

This parody is about as uneven and frustrating as season nine, with weak music and lyrics sucking the potential fun out of a solid concept.
