Buy Tickets For Newsical The MusicalBuy Tickets

Not to be confused with the Disney musical NEWSIES, this Drama Desk-nominated revue NEWSical is back lampooning current events, newsmakers, celebreties, and politicians - in short, everyone is fair game. With songs and material continually updated to take advantage of the top news stories, composer-lyricist Drama Desk Nominee Rick Crom's topical musical comedy is an ever-evolving mockery of all the news that is fit to spoof - and then some.


Even if you have seen the show before, the ever-updating nature of the show means that no two performances are ever identical, so that means a fresh script and songs pretty much all the time! Covering every outrageous headline from Miley Cyrus' twerking and tongue-wagging antics, Honey Boo Boo's latest bratty rant, to Obamacare and the federal shut-down - nothing is off-limits!

NEWSical is now in its fourth year off-Broadway, over an hour of uproarious songs and sketches that manages to parody all of today's biggest headlines - think, politics, pop culture, celebrities and even social media trends, there is something for everyone.
