It seems whole generations of Americans have never quite gotten over Friends, the beloved sitcom and cultural phenomenon that aired on NBC from 1994 to 2004. For many of us who grew up with the show, it takes only the sight of Central Perk, the friends’ coffee shop of choice, or the opening chords of Phoebe’s hit song “Smelly Cat” to shoot us full of nostalgia. That might explain why Netflix reportedly paid $100 million to retain its streaming rights to the show through 2019. But if 10 seasons alone aren’t enough to slake your thirst for Friends content, look no further than the Pikes Peak Center on Monday, when a musical parody of the show will make a one-night-only stop on its tour. Capturing some of the most iconic moments from the sitcom’s long run — from Monica dancing with a turkey on her head to Ross and Rachel’s legendary first kiss — Friends: The Musical Parody brings the whole goofy sextet back to life and condenses some of their adventures into a fast-paced jaunt. While gently poking fun at them, of course.
