Visiting the F.R.I.E.N.D.S Experience

A few weeks ago, we were invited to the opening night of The F.R.I.E.N.D.S Experience in Paris by our good friend, Peter Monbailleu, producer extraordinaire and definitely the guy you call if you want to add some rock and roll to your projects. I was really excited at the idea of going, not only to relive some fun 90s nostalgia but also to see some of my good friends who are working on the experience.

The funny thing is that I actually only got into the series Friends when I moved to Paris 12 years ago. I had even gone to a taping of a different series pilot on the same set, but I never really got into it. That was until I moved to Paris. Friends was one of the few shows that I could watch in English which also offered a comforting 'just like home’ feeling. I watched all 10 seasons in my first couple of years of expat life.

So fast forward 12 years to last month and there I was in Paris at The F.R.I.E.N.D.S Experience visiting some old friends and having fun with some new ones. It’s funny how life works out sometimes.
