Coming Soon: 'Friends,' the Opera -- With One of the Show's Top Stars Taking Part NY Post
A one-time-only opera based on the long-running NBC sitcom “Friends,” with one of the main cast members included, will take place later this month, the New York Post reports.
The special event, set for Sept. 28 at the Arts Theatre in London, is part of a promotion for the first broadcast of “Friends” on Britain’s Comedy Central, slated for Oct. 1. The organizers reported that David Schwimmer is “on board” with the project.
"One of the team had a meeting with David last week and he is definitely on board, but it is all TBC [to be confirmed]," said a rep for the special presentation.
E4 has been broadcasting "Friends" in the U.K. for seven years, showing two episodes each night. The channel aired its final episode last Sunday, with the sitcom soon to switch channels.
