Press / Reviews
"A boisterous, rejuvenating escape from reality that'll fill the void in your heart."
"The intricately weaved two-hour-long retelling of the series feels like the world’s most elaborate inside joke, created with a whole lot of love, just for fans."

"Every once in a while a sitcom comes along that tells an unforgettable story with an irreplaceable cast. Fans remember every single sub-plot, and can recite nearly every line of dialogue. Tackling an Office musical with unfamiliar faces is no easy task, but the gang at The Theater Center, NYC pulled it off flawlessly in this love letter to the show."
- Rob Crowther IV of The Pop Break
The Office! A Musical Parody connects the heart of the beloved source material to the much-needed laughter of a 2019 audience stuck all too often in an often-times dark world."
"The hit TV show has captured the hearts (and memes, and merchandise) of a plethora of people of all ages, races, and interests, and the power of this musical parody playing in a small off-Broadway house bringing in as diverse of an audience as television should not be under-estimated in a sector of entertainment often cited for its lack of audience diversity

"Bob and Tobly McSmith have written the book and lyrics to a variety of other parodies including Bayside! the Musical; Full House the Musical; and most recently, Friends the Musical. The Office! A Musical Parody is the best blend of writing and performing to date. The show is well-directed and choreographed with constant action onstage: and though it's madcap, it's not rushed,
and the jokes land solidly."
