Overview: “Friends” aired nearly 23 years ago. What happened to the time? Well… Ben Geller turned 21, and the Buffay triplets are now 18. They’re not much younger than when we met their parents in 1994. Ben’s taken a chance on reopening the Central Perk, and the triplets are there to support the enterprise. Leslie Buffay has inherited some of her Aunt Phoebe’s … uh, talent, and she’s the opening act on our tiny stage. The foursome catch up on a couch after Leslie’s set. And a new, but familiar character is hustling to fill orders for the thirsty coffeehouse patrons.
