Welcome to New York, circa eighteen something! Uptown, the aristocrats and robber barons think they own the city. Downtown, it’s the thieves, pimps, and she-males running the show. But the real kings of the city, the only truly free ones, are the news boys! Or for short, the newsies! Or for even shorter, the newsadoozies! And for some reason, they’re all British! Newsadoozies is a new musical comedy chronicling the news boys of New York City (the ‘ninety-nine percent’ of their era) in their adventures of selling newspapers, finding love, and getting eaten by the members of an ancient evil cannibalistic sex cult.

Newsadoozies stars Brian Glidewell (College Humor, UCB team Ragnarock), Megan Maes (Baby Wants Candy, Improv Everywhere), Katie Schorr (CollegeHumor, Take Me. Seriously.), Kevin Michael Murray (The Book of Mormon), Aaron Jackson (UCB teams Sandino and Everything Rabbits), Dan Hodapp (The Scene, UCB’s Beige), and Stephanie Streisand (Late Night With Jimmy Fallon). Brian Glidewell and Marcy Jarreau (Girl Camp, The To-Do List) wrote the book and lyrics with music and additional lyrics by Kevin Carter (Summer Schlock, That’s Andy). Christopher Gladysz directs.
