"I am beyond stoked to be joining the cast of NEWSical The Musical," said Harry in a statement. "The brilliance of Tom D'Angora, coupled with such a formidable cast, made this a production I simply couldn't refuse!"
Producer D'Angora added, "Jackée starring in NEWSical is beyond my wildest dreams and expectations. I have said it before and I will say it again: Jackée is a comedic genius and she can sing her face off. Hands down, I am the luckiest producer in New York theatre this season!"

Harry, who has been seen on Broadway in A Broadway Musical and The Boys from Syracuse, currently stars on the CW's "The First Family" and has a recurring role on BET's "Let's Stay Together."
