Get ready to relive all your memories with Rachel, Monica, Joey, Chandler, Ross and Phoebe because Friends is heading to Broadway! Huffington Post reports that a parody musical based on the classic TV sitcom will makes its debut sometime this fall at New York City's Triad Theater.

“Friends! The Musical!” will be penned by Bob and Tobly McSmith, the same pair behind previous off-Broadway shows “90210! The Musical!,” “Katdashians! The Musical!” and the Saved by the Bell parody “Bayside! The Musical!” Judging by the spot-on and referential song titles, the audience will be on a nostalgic joy ride for the entire show.

The tunes include “The Only Coffee Shop in New York City," “45 Grove Street – How Can We Afford This Place?,” “How you Doing, Ladies?,” “Hey Ugly Naked Guy Who Lives Across the Street!” and “The Ballad of Fat Monica.” While the Broadway musical isn't endorsed by original series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman, there is a possibility that former cast members like Lisa Kudrow or Matthew Perry could make an appearance! The McSmith's shows are known for having original actors make surprise cameos during their parodies.

Tickets for "Friends! The Musical!" go on sale beginning in June. Click here for more information and keep the nostalgia going with the latest episode of Fuse's Besterday podcast:
