A Friends Musical Is Touring The UK This Summer
Could we be any more excited?
It’s been announced that a new musical or ‘Friendsical’ if you will, is set to start touring the UK this summer, to celebrate there show’s 25th anniversary.
Obviously a parody of the hit TV show, Friends, the new extravaganza has been created by writer and director Miranda Larson and will take to the road on a full nationwide tour before enjoying a full season at the Edinburgh Fringe.
According to the British Theatre website, the show opens at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham on July 15th, before heading off to Darlington, Derry, Newcastle, Kingston, Malvern, Blackpool, Chelmsford, Southampton and Croydon.
It will then take up residence at the Edinburgh Fringe, running from August 1st-25th.
Featuring original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?’, the synopsis says: "When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life… will he end up with his one true love?”
At the moment there’s no suggestion that any of the original cast members from the TV show will be involved, but you never know what could happen - a brief cameo here, a guest appearance there…
And we’re not the only ones who are excited about the news, with fans taking to Twitter to express their delight:
