NEWSical the Musical Will Welcome Susan Mosher and Carly Sakolove
10 Apr 2013
Susan Mosher and Carly Sakolove will join the cast of the Off-Broadway musical revue NEWSical the Musical beginning April 15 at Theatre Row.
Sakolove steps into the production as a swing, while Mosher, who starred in Hairspray on Broadway, replaces Christine Pedi, who is currently playing a 10-week engagement in Broadway's Chicago.
"I'm so thrilled Susie is back,” said producer Tom D’Angora in a statement. “She is one of the funniest people in North America and we have missed her…I've been waiting a long time to work with Carly and the timing finally lined up. Her talents are a perfect fit for our quirky little show."
Sakolove is best known for her Youtube video "Broadway Divas Send in the Clowns," a parody where she displays her range of vocal talents, portraying Bernadette Peters, Patti LuPone and Liza Minnelli.
The company currently features Michael West, Tommy Walker, Christina Bianco and Ryan Knowles.
Rick Crom is the show’s creator and writer. Mark Waldrop directs. Rounding out the creative team are Ed Goldschneider (music director), Jason Courson (set designer), and Ryan Obermeier (stage manager).

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
