"I've been waiting years to work with both of these comedic geniuses,” producer Tom D’Angora said in a statement. “The timing couldn't be more perfect and we are blessed to have them on our team."

NEWSical the Musical, penned by Rick Crom, is the "ever-evolving, completely un-sanitized musical mockery of all the news that’s fit to spoof. From John Travolta, Anderson Cooper, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes to the national fight for marriage equality and the 2012 Presidential Election, NEWSical the Musical sets all of today’s biggest news and pop culture headlines to song." Mark Waldrop directs.
Rounding out the creative team are Ed Goldschneider (music director), Jason Courson (set designer), Josh Starr (lighting designer) and Scott Delacruz (stage manager).
Newsical the Musical is produced by Tom D'Angora.
