NEWSical The Musical makes a return Off-Broadway with performances at AMT Theatre Sundays and Mondays beginning March 19. This revival benefits the Entertainment Community Fund, with 50% of net proceeds going to the non-profit and its efforts to support professionals across the entertainment industry.
Starring are returning NEWSical company members Kristen Alderson, Taylor Crousore, Carly Sakalove, and Michael West. Each week will feature a special guest star, beginning with NEWSical alums Sushie Mosher March 19 and 20 and Christine Pedi March 26 and 27.
The ever-changing show, created and written by Rick Crom, directed by Mark Waldrop, and music directed by Ed Goldschneider, features new material weekly, with each performance covering the latest in current events, politics, entertainment, influencers, TikTok crazes, and more.
The show began as a Greenwich Village cabaret in 2002 before moving to Off-Broadway's Theatre Row, running 2004-2005. NEWSical returned to Theatre Row for two separate runs in 2009 and 2010, with the latter continuing for more than 3,000 performances before closing in 2019. The Off-Broadway return follows a 2022 Las Vegas production.
