There may not be a “Friends” reunion anytime soon, but the characters of the beloved show are reuniting on stage in New York City for “Friends! The Musical!”

The Friends musical parody is written by Bob and Tobly McSmith, the minds behind past musical parodies of “Saved by the Bell” and “Full House,” as well as “Kardashians! The Musical.”

“It only makes sense to set our sights on the hit TV show Friends after creating parody musicals about Saved by the Bell, Full House, and Beverley Hills, 90210,” co-writer Tobly McSmith told Entertainment Weekly.

“Not only do we poke fun and celebrate the show, we also get some jokes in about the actor’s lives.” “Oh and there will be a smelly cat, there will be Janice, and there will be Fat Monica,” he continues. “We want all the alumni of Friends to come to the show and possibly be in it for a night or two — our first call is to the agent of Marcel the Monkey.”

The Off-Broadway musical will be opening in the fall at The Triad Theatre, tickets go on sale in June. Here’s a few of the song titles that will be performed:

“The Only Coffee Shop in New York City”

“45 Grove Street — How Can We Afford This Place?”

“How You Doing, Ladies?” — Joey

“Hey Ugly Naked Guy Who Lives Across the Street!”

“We Were On a Break!”

“I’m Gonna Hump U” — Marcel

“Oh. My. God. It’s Janice!” — Janice

“Will They or Won’t They” — Ross and Rachel

“The Ballad of Fat Monica”

“Could I BE Anymore…..in Love with Monica” — Chandler

“The One Where We Make a Million Dollars An Episode”

“We’ll Always Be There For You”
