A musical based on Friends is coming to the New York stage later this year. Could this news be any more awesome?!

After the success of a Friends-themed musical in Chicago last year, a new stage show called Friends! The Musical will hilariously send up everyone's favourite sitcom in an Off-Broadway production beginning in the autumn.

Just to clarify, Friends! The Musical Parody is technically an unofficial musical not directly endorsed by the creators of the original show – but it will still lovingly poke fun at Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, Ross, Chandler and Joey.

The parody show has been written by Bob and Tobly McSmith, who've sent up Saved By the Bell, Full House, Showgirls and the Kardashians with outrageous musicals in the past.

According to The Huffington Post, songs like 'The One Where We Make A Million Dollars An Episode', 'The Only Coffee Shop in New York', 'Oh. My God. It's Janice!', 'We Were On A Break' and, of course, 'We'll Always Be There For You' will reference classic episodes.

What, no Smelly Cat? If you're all-in for a night of Friends-inspired music, you can book your tickets beginning in June ahead of the show's premiere this autumn at New York's Triad Theatre.

Yadda, yadda, yadda… what more could you possibly need to know to buy these tickets?! (Sorry, wrong '90s sitcom.)

Even though it's totally unofficial, Friends! The Musical Parody is probably your one-and-only shot at seeing Ross, Rachel and all the rest bantering again - since the cast themselves have ruled out a proper reunion.

To get you in the mood, clap along to this gem:
