why watch newsical the musical

If you have ever loved watching the news and mocked something on it, NEWSical the Musical is the perfect show to attend. It has lyrics, music and even a book that is written by Rick Crom, a Drama Desk nominee. Just as the news keeps changing, the musical constantly updates itself and adds songs about the latest topics. It mocks celebrities, politicians, current events, and several other popular entities. Every single joke is very relatable and will make you clutch your sides in peals of laughter. This is a musical comedy that is a perfect satire on the biggest news that is ideal to spoof.

The Story

NEWSical does not have any particular plot. It is not straightforward or linear like several other musicals. However, it comprises a collection of scenes and sketches that all talk about the news. It is performed in a manner that is very similar to a live newscast. This hilarious musical does not spare anyone. Not even the ex-President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Nancy Grace, Lady Gaga, Dr. Phil, Sarah Palin, Christina Aguilera, and Elena Kagan are safe from the clutches of this comical masterpiece. If you’ve been on the news, you better watch out! You can be sure to have the songs updates to keep up with the trendiest news around.
