I’ll be there for you…
Have you missed hanging out with your favorite “Friends?” A new parody musical makes a stop at Findlay’s Marathon Center for the Performing Arts to cure you of your blues. “Friends: The Musical Parody” plays on Friday, November 19 as part of a national tour. The brainchild of songwriters Bob and Tobly McSmith— who also created “The Office! A Musical Parody” and (we’re serious) “Katdashians”— “Friends” is a loving sendup of the classic comedy show. $27-149. 7:30pm. 200 W. Main Cross St., Findlay. 419-423-2787. mcpa.org
Buckeye, Wolverine or neutral?
Once a year, the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio reaches a fever pitch on the gridiron with the annual Border Battle game between UM and OSU. Fans from both sides fly their colors and declare their allegiances. This year, take an extra step by participating in the 2021 Border Battle 5K race in Ann Arbor on Friday, November 26, just one day before the iconic college football game. Runners can choose to race in either Blue or Scarlet shirts— or, if you have no stake in the rivalry, choose to be a “party crasher” and wear purple, instead! $40. 10am. Gallup Park, Ann Arbor.
