Dunder Mifflin left Scranton, Pennsylvania last autumn to take over NYC’s Off-Broadway scene in the Theater District…but much like Pam’s time in the Big Apple, the show will be heading home in a few months.
The Office! A Musical Parody has been an Off-Broadway hit since landing in NYC last fall. Brilliantly written by Bob and Tobly McSmith (the two guys who also created Friends! The Musical Parody) the show will sadly be wrapping up at The Theater Center as of January 13, 2020. But not to fret! There is still some time left to clock into Dunder Mifflin’s Time Square branch—and if you move quickly you’ll be able to find some tickets available here.
The show is a satire on the NBC hit, inviting the audience to work at the third largest paper company in Scranton alongside their favorite characters, while being followed by a camera crew—much like the show itself. This two-hour production takes fans on a journey through all 9 seasons of The Office, covering classic moments from the show like The Dundies, Michaels’ Fun Run Rabies Race for the Cure, The Dinner Party, and Threat Level Midnight.
Through it all fans will get to see 28 characters from the show hit the stage, and a number of them are a fan favorite surprise. (Hint: there will be Chili!) In a review, Mashable called The Office! A Musical Parody “the world’s most elaborate inside joke, created with a whole lot of love, just for fans.”
As for the music, which is scored by Assaf Gleizner, you can expect to hear songs such as: “Welcome to Scranton (The Electric City),” “That’s What She Said,” “The Dundies,” “Marry Me Beesly,” and more!
