Beloved by millions for its wackiness, hilarity, quotability and heart, The Office will forever remain one of the best sitcoms ever made. Over the course of nine seasons, fans got to know the characters like they were their own coworkers and friends. The Office: A Parody Musical pays tribute to those characters and brings them back to life at The Theater Center in NYC.
