Entertainment: ‘Friends’ parody highlights a very busy week

We have about as busy a week on the entertainment front as you’ll ever see around here this week. On the music side, Area 23 is hosting a big “Decades Night,” in which several artists will each do a set of songs from a particular decade. As far as theater, the Capitol Center for the Arts has a musical parody of the classic sit-com Friends. And Red River Theatres will have one showing of The Divide, a gritty Western.

Enjoy!
