Although funny, NEWSical the Musical does not manage to make a mark maybe because of its topical genre. But the plot was crisp, to the point and comic for those who enjoy subtle satire. If you're into SNL (with a great background score, of course) then this should be your pick.

Yes, NEWSical the Musical is a comedy - but it is nothing like the other comedies we've grown up watching. The musical makes use of random cheap jokes to sell the play, but surprisingly they're well received by the audience. The intimate setting makes it a show worth spending on. My husband and I had a great night at this show.

Politics is not always serious, and that's exactly what NEWSical the Musical wants to portray. However, amidst its silly, stupid humour and uninteresting punchlines, the real purpose of the show is lost. Yes, it makes pretty good points, but you're probably not going to notice them because of the cheap humour. Not worth it!
