Following in the footsteps of previous parodies like "The Office" is the next piece of pop culture set for a good-natured skewering on the stage.
The upcoming off-Broadway show, titled "The Office! A Musical Parody," follows the employees of Dunder Mifflin, who in addition to selling paper, also spontaneously burst into song. Here's the show's official synopsis:
"'The Office! A Musical Parody' highlights a typical day at Scranton's third largest paper company, Dunder Mifflin. For no logical reason, a documentary crew begins filming the lives of the employees in an immersive parody experience where audiences "work" with all their favorite officemates."
A rundown of the tunes set to be belted out during the show proves that the creators (co-writers Bob and Tobly McSmith, and composer Assaf Gleizner) are paying extra close attention to details from the nine-season run of "The Office," highlighting the famous jokes and zany characters that made the series such a success. The tracklist includes:
- SCRANTON: THE ELECTRIC CITY
- Why is There a Camera Crew?
- Welcome to Diversity Day
- That's What She Said!
- Did I Stutter?
- Goodbye Toby, You're the Worsty
- CRAZY FROM THE RABIES
- The Creed of Creed
- WUPHF! (There It Is)
- Marry Me, Beasley
- Panic at the Café Disco!
- Threat Level Mid Afternoon
"The Office! A Musical Parody" is set to open in New York City in September. For more information, visit theofficemusicalparody.com.
