What was meant to be a short season in Melbourne’s Comedy Theatre has been expanded to the length of a more major musical. The Australian producers of Friends! The Musical Parody has today confirmed that the Melbourne leg of their tour has been extended by a fortnight, with shows being held from 15 June 2021 until 4 July 2021. That is a whole lot more of Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey, Ross and the lovable barista, Gunther.
Debuting on the Gold Coast in February, Friends! The Musical Parody condenses the beloved NBC Sitcom until a couple of hours, linked by new showstopping numbers, fourth-wall breaking and the personalities many of us have come to adore.
Friends! The Musical Parody is directed by Dash Kruck, with choreography by Cameron Mitchell, set and costume design by Frances Hannaway, lighting design by Jason Glenwright and musical direction by Steven Kreamer.
