The Las Vegas Strip can expect many laughs this fall with one of the biggest hits in Off-Broadway history. Tom D’Angora and Michael D’Angora bring Off-Broadway Alliance Award winning NEWSical The Musical to The V Theatre, located at The Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood.
NEWSical The Musical is an ever-changing musical comedy with all the news that can be faked. Through sketches and original musical numbers, the show mocks and parodies everything from the lowest depths of reality television to the highest office in the country. The long-running musical broke Off-Broadway records, won the Off-Broadway Alliance Award, received Senate and Mayoral Proclamations for its contributions to New York’s entertainment and political scene, and welcomed several notable guests to the cast, including Perez Hilton, Kandi Burress, Cheri Oteri, Jackee Harry, and La Toya Jackson over their decade.
Last spring, NEWSical The Musical made headlines in Sin City after a sold-out limited run at The Majestic Repertory in the Las Vegas Arts District. Covering themes such as Adele’s ill-fated Vegas mansion and “family-friendly” Vegas, the company can’t wait to return to Vegas for the latest troubles and scandals! NEWSical The Musical kicks off Thursday, November 17.
NEWSical returns to Las Vegas with Emmy award winners Kristen Alderson (One Life to Live, General Hospital), Taylor Crousore (Forbidden Broadway) and Carly Sakolove (Mama Mia, Marvelous Wonderettes). They will be joined by Dylan Hartwell (Off Broadway’s NEWSical) and Gregory Sullivan (Naked Boys Singing).
NEWSical is produced by Tony-nominated producers Tom D’Angora and Michael D’Angora. Tom is represented in Vegas by Naked Boys Singing (winner; BroadwayWorld.com/Las Vegas – Best New Musical), which just celebrated its first year on the boards. In New York, The D’Angoras co-produced the recent Broadway Revival of Caroline, or Change and Barry Manilow’s Broadway musical Harmony. NEWSicasl is co-produced by Sam Arce, Laura Z. Barkett/Theatre Nerd Productions, Christine Gonzales-DeJohn, Ray DeJohn, Perri Gillon, Maggie Klause, Dawn Luebbe, Thompson Mancuso, Syreeta Molsberry, Jeffrey J. Neuman, Nick Padgett and Sharon Weiss. Ed Goldschneider serves as musical director. Mark Waldrop returns as director. NEWSical was created and written by Rick Crom.
