Gossip columnist Perez Hiltonhas joined the cast of the off-Broadway musical revue, NEWSical the Musical, for a four-week run that began Saturday, September 8th. BroadwayWorld.com was there to capture the opening night fun on Monday, September 17th - check it out!
 
From John TravoltaAnderson CooperTom Cruise and Katie Holmes to the national fight for marriage equality and the 2012 Presidential Election, NEWSical the Musical sets all of today’s biggest news and pop culture headlines to song. With Hilton’s arrival, award-winning composer-lyricist Rick Crom will add new satirical spoofs to the show including a Chick-fil-A number and a song about the phenomenon of Perez Hilton that will be performed by the man himself. 

NEWSical the Musical is the ever-evolving, completely un-sanitized musical mockery of all the news that’s fit to spoof. The Associated Press calls it “The Daily Show set to music ” The show was named Best New Musical of 2011 by the Off Broadway Alliance. Infectious melodies, razor-sharp lyrics, biting satire and more unpredictability than a Courtney Love tweet make NEWSical a laugh-filled, high octane musical revue of all the most talked-about headlines of the day.
