Friends pop-up coming to New York as show celebrates 25th anniversary
POSTED 02 Aug 2019 . BY Andy Knaggs
A pop-up experience dedicated to the Friends television show is coming to New York starting 7 September.

Created by live experience provider Superfly, with collaboration on planning, design and implementation by JRA, and in association with Warner Bros Television Group and Warner's consumer products arm, the Friends pop-up experience celebrates the 25th anniversary of the show's debut in 1994.

Fans will be able to explore set re-creations, props and costumes, buy merchandise, and indulge in some classic Friends fun, such as playing foosball at Chandler and Joey's, learning Monica's top tidying tips, and posing for pictures on the famous orange couch in the recreated Central Perk coffee house.

The experience will open seven days a week, from 10am until 10pm, from 7 September to 6 October and will be located in the heart of Manhattan's SoHo district, with a retail store entrance on Broadway and a ticket holder entrance on Mercer Street.

"As we celebrate the show's milestone anniversary, we're excited to bring the Friends experience to life for our fans in a way that pays homage to the remarkable cast of characters, iconic sets and instantly quotable moments," said Peter van Roden, senior VP for Global Themed Entertainment at Warner Bros Consumer Products.

Superfly is also been behind The Seinfeld Experience, celebrating another American comedy favourite, which is due to open in New York during Q3 2019.
