Friendsical: Friends musical to tour the UK

Friendsical: Friends tribute musical dates, venues, tickets


A parody musical about hit US sitcom Friends will be touring the UK this year.

Friendsical is inspired by the popular TV series which aired between 1994 and 2004.

The UK tour will open at Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham on July 15. It’ll then move on to the Darlington Hippodrome between July 22 and 27.

Friendsical will go on to play at the Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe between August 1 and 25.

The tour will then continue, stopping off at Derry, Newcastle, Kingston, Malvern, Blackpool, Chelmsford, Southampton and Croydon.

Described as a “loving parody not to be confused with the Warner Bros Entertainment Inc. series Friends”, a synopsis of Friendsical reads:

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?

Featuring original songs such as (He’s her) Lobster!, Richard’s Moustache and You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?, the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention. What could possibly go wrong?

Friendsical is written by Miranda Larson, whose credits include Christmasaurus, The Night Pirates and SpongeBob Live.

Cast and creative for the tour will be announced in due course.
