What is the Story of NEWSical the Musical?
NEWSical does not follow a traditional linear plot. It is a series of sketches and scenes about the news and is performed like a live newscast.

Critics’ Reviews

The only thing not funny about 'NEWSical the Musical' is that each day's absurdities provide no shortage of inspiration.
