2. That’s right — a FRIENDS musical!!!
4. “Friends is that show I watch every night before I go to bed, so naturally, it means a lot to me,” Eli Golden, the writer and director of the show, told BuzzFeed.
5. “I am a huge lover of musicals and really wanted to tell a great story while staying true to the source material. This is a musical for fans by the fans, both of Friends and musicals in general.”
6. A version of the musical debuted earlier this year at the Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival, and after receiving an overwhelmingly positive response, Golden decided to finish the original score, script, and choreography.
8. “I started writing this musical roughly three years ago and have had the songs stuck in my head ever since,” he said.
9. “Between the cast, the band, and production team, we have stacked this show with funny and talented people, and that atmosphere is infectious.”
