Like lots of you, I'm a huge friends fan. In fact, my husband and I got our nicknames for each other from the show. He is literally in my phone as "lobster".  (If you know you know ;-)

Friends is reaching a whole new generation and I love it!  First we got the Friends reunion we all wanted and now...drumroll please...we have Friends The Musical!  Scroll down for all the juicy details!

First I have to know, who is your favorite friend?

I'm goin' with Joey Tribbiani all the way!  I asked my insurance if Dr. Drake Ramoray was taking new patients and I could hear the eye roll.

So FRIENDS! The Musical Parody started in NYC and now continues its successful off-Broadway run that pokes fun at the show we know and love right here in Jersey. Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Monica, Phoebe, Joey and Gunther are back!

This show is actually a celebrity magnet!  Stars have been spotted in the audience plus lots of bachelorette parties, anniversary celebrations and more have been raving about it.

We love the characters, their warmth with each other and really just feeling a bit of nostalgia.  It's good for the soul ya know?  Here are the details on the show:

Hackensack Meridian Health Theatre • Basie Center Campus • 99 Monmouth Street, Red Bank
