Newsical 2006: The New Edition is the new version of the smash hit that came to New York last year at Upstairs at Studio 54, running for 8 months before going on a national tour and two sit down productions.

Lauded for its up-to-the-minute headline news satirization, Newsical reminded audiences of the kind of political satire on stage that was once as prevalent as it is in film and television now. Created at a breakneck pace to keep up with the day?s news cycle, Newsical spoofs both current events as well as perennial media targets in a riotous musical send-up that is a new version from the one that had audiences in stitches 7 months ago.

Newsical was created by veteran musical satirist and comedian Rick Crom (Composer and Lyricist). Rick has created many Off-Broadway and cabaret revues including Oh Fine RSVP, The Subject Was Neurosis, Absolutely Rude, Our Life and Times (1999 MAC & Bistro Awards for Outstanding Musical Revue) and What in the World (2003 Nightlife Award). His topical material is also featured at the Crystal Palace Theatre in Aspen.

Director/ Choreographer Donna Drake was in the original company of A Chorus Line and has many Broadway credits as a singer/dancer. As a director she directed Romance in the Dark, the Broadway Concert starring Jennifer Holiday, Boobs the Musical, Christmas with the Crawfords, et al.
