This is the one where everyone’s favorite musical sitcom spoof pivots to “The Venue” inside The Orleans Hotel & Casino for an all-new residency! Beginning April 28, 2022, FRIENDS! The Unauthorized Musical Parodywill perform Thursdays through Sundays at 7:30 p.m.
“We were on a break,” said John Bentham, CEO of Ivory Star Productions and co-producer of FRIENDS! The Unauthorized Musical Parody. “The COVID pandemic put a hold on our performances for a while, but we’re thrilled to announce FRIENDS! The Unauthorized Musical Parody’s new residency at ‘The Venue’ inside The Orleans Hotel & Casino. Once again, we can be there for the throngs of ‘Friends’ fans yearning to see this fan-favorite entertainment event.”
FRIENDS! The Unauthorized Musical Parody lovingly lampoons all ten seasons of the classic sitcom that ran from 1994-2004. Boasting hysterically funny musical numbers with titles like “Central Perk Tango,” “Will We Or Won’t We,” “How YaDoin’?” and “Pivot,” the musical parody pokes fun at the TV show’s seemingly endless romantic tension, its characters’ idiosyncratic catch phrases, and even takes a shot at the unusually spacious New York City apartment that the struggling twenty-somethings uncannily appear to afford.
“This production is a good-hearted no-holds-barred tribute to the beloved sitcom,” Bentham said. “With songs that will stick in your head for weeks afterward and no great ‘Friends’ moment left unacknowledged, from ‘Unagi’ to ‘Smelly Cat,’ FRIENDS! The Unauthorized Musical Parody delivers a heartwarming, nostalgic experience that will make your day, your week, your month or even your year.”
Presented by Theater Mogul, Lynn Shore Entertainment and Ivory Star Productions, in association with The Orleans Hotel & Casino, FRIENDS! The Unauthorized Musical Parodyperforms Thursdays through Sundays at The Orleans. Doors open at 7 p.m. with the show beginning promptly at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available via orleanscasino.com.
