Following in the footsteps of previous parodies like "Cruel Intentions: The Musical," hit NBC sitcom "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.
