NEWSical The Musical, which celebrated its 3,000th performance earlier this year, will end its run at Theatre Row June 17. The long-running musical revue—an ever-evolving comedy inspired by the day's news—opened in 2009.
The closing night cast will feature the show’s original stars Christine Pedi and Michael West, as well as long-time cast members Susan Mosher and Taylor Crousore.
Over its decade run, NEWSical has welcomed a number of guest stars to the show, including Perez Hilton, Broadway’s original Annie Andrea McArdle, Saturday Night Live’s Cheri Oteri, Emmy Award winner Jackée, Real Houewives' Kandi Burruss, Queer Eye’s Carson Kressley, and La Toya Jackson.
NEWSical is created by and written by Rick Crom (Urinetown), directed by Mark Waldrop, produced by Tom D’Angora, and features music direction by Ed Goldschneider. Rounding out the creative team are Jason Courson (set designer) and the current stage manager, Krystal Roccaro.
