Tony nominee Andrea McArdle begins performances in the off-Broadway musical spoof NEWSical the Musical on November 14. McArdle, who made history as Broadway’s original star of Annie in 1977, will deliver NEWSical’s latest headlines and punch lines through December 2. The ever-evolving news parody continues to run at Theatre Row’s Kirk Theatre.
NEWSical the Musical is the always changing, completely unsanitized musical mockery of all the news that’s fit to spoof. From Bloomberg’s sign language interpreter to Honey Boo Boo Child to the 2012 presidential election, NEWSical the Musical sets all of today’s biggest pop culture headlines to song.
Created by Rick Crom and directed by Mark Waldrop, NEWSical also features Christine Pedi, Michael West, Tommy Walker, Susan Mosher and Ryan Knowles. SNL funny lady Cheri Oteri will step into NEWSical on December 3 for a month-long run.
