Don’t miss this hilarious, unauthorized parody of your favorite TV show, now coming to a city near you. Mashable calls the show “the world’s most elaborate inside joke, created with a whole lot of love, just for fans.” Original Off-Broadway cast member, Madeline Glenn Thomas, joins the tour cast as everyone’s favorite receptionist, Pam.

A Musical Parody is on track to be our most successful New York production in 10 years,” says Tobly McSmith. “The Office!
