From a press release:

Everyone knows that “The Office” is based in Scranton, so it’s about time that the off-Broadway show “The Office! A Musical Parody” comes to the Electric City.

Broadway in Scranton is bringing Michael, Dwight, Pam, Jim, and the gang to the Scranton Cultural Center at the Masonic Temple on Thursday, Sept. 26 and Friday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets go on sale next Friday, July 19 and will be available at the Fidelity Bank Box Office at the Scranton Cultural Center (420 N. Washington Ave., Scranton), all Ticketmaster outlets, or by calling 570-344-1111. Ticket prices have not been announced yet.

Still currently running at the Jerry Orbach Theater at The Theater Center in New York City, this unauthorized musical parody of NBC’s television hit show “The Office” is on its third North American tour. Writers Bob and Tobly McSmith also created musical parodies of “Friends,” “Saved by the Bell,” “Full House,” “90210,” “Showgirls,” and “Cats.”

“‘The Office! A Musical Parody’ is on track to be our most successful New York production in 10 years,” Tobly McSmith said. “And ‘The Office! A Musical Parody’ is now one of the most successful off-Broadway shows in history. As Michael might say, ‘It’s been a dream come thru.'”

It’s a typical morning at Scranton’s third-largest paper company until, for no logical reason, a documentary crew begins filming the lives of the employees of Dunder Mifflin. Don’t miss this hilarious, unauthorized parody of your favorite TV show. Mashable calls the show “the world’s most elaborate inside joke, created with a whole lot of love, just for fans.”

Your favorite moments from all nine seasons are mashed up into one “typical” day with Michael, Jim, Pam, Dwight, and others at “The Office,” featuring songs such as “That’s What She Said,” “Marry Me Beesly,” and “We Have Fun Here.”
