It's one of the most iconic television shows in history and one that no amount of reruns can ruin.  

And with a Friends reunion still uncertain this looks like it will be perfect for those eager fans who want their fix.

To celebrate the sitcom's 25th anniversary, Friendsical, written by Miranda Larson, will open at the Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham in July.

It is a parody based on our favourite characters Joey, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Ross.

The production will travel the nation, playing in cities like Newcastle, Blackpool, Southampton, and Croydon.

This plot for the play goes as follows: ''When Ross’ wife leaves him for another woman, he fears he will never find love again. But then Rachel runs back into his life…will he end up with his one true love?''

It continues, ''Joey and the gang take on naked Thursdays, a power cut, and a dinosaur convention and there’ll be original songs such as ‘(He’s her) Lobster!’, ‘Richard’s Moustache’ and ‘You’re Over Me? When Were You Under Me?’''

It sounds AMAZING.

The full casting and crew for Friendsical will be announced soon but in the meantime, we're going to re-watch every episode to get geared up for this fantastic show.

Laura Whitmore is a woman of many talents.

Not only is she gearing up for BBC's Strictly Come Dancing, but now it's been confirmed that she's going to turn her hand to acting after the show is finished.

We can't wait to see her in action in April!

 

Not Dead Enough is due to open on April 18 in the Bord Gais Energy Theatre and will run for four days.

The people who brought the wizardly world of Hogwarts to the big screen have sparked a whole lot of speculation that another Potter flick could be on the way as they have reportedly filed a request to trademark the West End play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.

The two-part play was written by Jack Thorne but is based on a story written by Potter creator JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and a director named John Tiffany.

The stage play is set 19 years after the events of the last Harry Potter novel and documents Harry’s adult life as an employee at the Ministry of Magic and that of his son Albus Severus Potter as he embarks on his own Hogwarts journey.

And now – according to The Telegraph – Warner Bros have submitted a trademark request for a variety of goods and projects related to The Cursed Child including “motion picture films featuring comedy, drama, action, adventure and/or animation, and motion picture films for broadcast on television featuring comedy, drama, action, adventure and/or animation".

However since news of the request broke there’s been a cruel update for Potter fans as the Irish Examiner has reported that a rep for JK Rowling has said there are no plans for the show to be made into a film and that “this type of trademarking is standard practice”.  Nooo!

These comments seem to back up a statement made by the Rowling herself back in February when she tweeted that The Cursed Child is play, not a movie.

So after all that, it looks like you’ll have to head to the West End if you want to find out what Harry does next.

Harry Potter seems to be a never-ending story, but we love it so much that we won't complain.

A new HP book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I & II will be available to us from 31 July this year. Hurrah!

The book is actually an early script of the play by the same name, which was put together by JK Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany.

The play is set to debut in London on the same day the book is being released, so there will be Harry Potter parties all around.

The story is set nearly 20 years after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Harry is employed by the Ministry of Magic employee – and is very overworked. As well as that, his son Albus is having problems living up to his name.

Sounds good? We can't wait for it either.

Well, the years have gone by fast!

Harry Potter , Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are all coming back for the next instalment of Harry Potter mania – the new screenplay in London's West End.

But they look quite a bit different from their movie counterparts – let's just say Ron has a receding hairline and they're all a tad bit older than we imagined. 

Yep, Harry will be played by 36-year-old Jamie Parker and Paul Thornley has been honoured the part of Ron Weasley. 

In the play, Ron is married to Hermione, who is played by 45-year-old Noma Dumezweni.

The new dynamic trio will star in Harry Potter and The Cursed Child, which has already sold more than a quarter of a million tickets, despite not debuting until May 2016. 

The play is in hot demand, with our beloved J.K. Rowling devising the story, John Tiffany directing the cast and Sonia Friedman producing the play.

Sonia said that while the show won't be a high-tech production, they will have special effects experts on hand – as well as an illusionist. "There will be magic," she promised.

We love Sienna Miller even more for this.

The actress has revealed that she actually turned down a part in a Broadway play after learning that her salary was WAY lower than that of her male co-star. 

Speaking to the October issue of Vogue, Ms Miller admitted: “It was a play with just two of us on stage and I was offered less than half of what he was going to be paid.

"If it was two men, it wouldn’t probably happen. Sad, but I walked away."

The Hollywood actress, who recently stepped out in London sporting a new hair do', decided not to name the play or the actor in question. 

She did, however, speak fondly of her time in Cabaret, saying she "peaked" from the experience. 

She described her time on the show "as the most incredible, fulfilling" role in her career to date.
