Emmy-winning television star Carson Kressley joins the cast of off Broadway's NEWSical The Musical for four weeks only.

From the looming fiscal cliff crisis to the pope opening a Twitter account to Honey Boo Boo, NEWSicalThe Musical sets all of today's biggest pop culture headlines to song. Kressley is the latest star to grace the NEWSical The Musical stage. Previously, celebrity gossip guru Perez Hilton joined the show for a limited run, followed by Broadway's original Annie, Andrea McArdle and most recently, Saturday Night Live's Cheri Oteri. Carson Kressley will appear in NEWSical The Musical from February 6th - March 3rd.

Carson Kressley decided to join NEWSical The Musical after seeing his friend Perez Hilton in the show. "I was really impressed with the show and the intelligence of its humor. Perez told me it was a great time and that I should give it a try."

He is excited to add stage phenomenon to his already lengthy resume that includes television star, celebrity stylist, author and fashion designer.

Kressley has starred on several television shows including Lifetime's critically acclaimed How To Look Good Naked, OWN's Carson-Nation, and Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, a role that earned him a primetime Emmy. He was voted a "fan-favorite" on ABC's worldwide hit, Dancing With the Stars, and recently completed a headlining gig as the host of Dancing With the Stars Live in Las Vegas.

He has been a style contributor on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America and Live! with Kelly.
