PEREZ HILTON JOINs the CAST OF the OFF-BROADWAY sensation, NEWSical the Musical

New York, NY: The internet's most notorious gossip columnist Perez Hilton joins the cast of the uproarious off-Broadway musical revue, NEWSical the Musical, for four weeks only beginning Saturday, September 8th. From John Travolta, Anderson Cooper, Tom 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. Perez Hilton will begin preview performances on Saturday, September 8th. The opening night press performance will be Monday, September 17th.

"Dreams do come true, if you believe. And I BELIEVE, big time!”, says Perez Hilton from his Los Angeles home. “I am beyond thrilled, nervous and zen about making my New York theater debut. It's gonna be a wild ride in a show that guarantees to put smiles on people's faces. It will be no holds barred! Pure unadulterated fun! I expect to have the time of my life and look forward to hugging happy theatergoers after each show!”

“What do you do when your show needs to sell tickets? You bring in a celebrity,” says producer Tom D’Angora of his decision to add Perez Hilton to NEWSical the Musical. “Perez Hilton was the perfect choice because our show is basically the musical version of his highlarious website. If you are a daily reader of Perez like I've been since 2007, you know how funny and charismatic he is. We couldn't be more excited to welcome him as the newest member of our talented cast.”

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.
In addition to Perez Hilton, NEWSical the Musical features Christine Pedi (Forbidden Broadway, Talk Radio), Christina Bianco (Drama Desk nominee, Forbidden Broadway), Michael West (Forbidden Broadway, When Pigs Fly), Tommy Walker (Evil Dead The Musical), Amy Griffin (How the Grinch Stole Christmas) and Ryan Knowles (host of Nickelodeon’s ME:TV).
Rick Crom has appeared on Broadway in Urinetown, Footloose and The Goodbye Girl and on FX’s critically - acclaimed series “Louie” starring comedian Louis C.K. NEWSical is directed by Mark Waldrop (When Pigs Fly, My Deah, Inventing Avi, Papermill Playhouse’s Gypsy). Rounding out the creative team are Ed Goldschneider (music director), Jason Courson (set designer), Josh Starr (lighting designer) and Scott Delacruz (stage manager).

Newsical the Musical is produced by Tom D’Angora (Naked Boys Singing!, ICONS, Broadway Diva Christmas, Divas I’ve Done).
NEWSical the Musical plays at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street). Tickets are $85 - $110 and can be purchased through Telecharge.com or by calling (212) 279-4200 or (800) 432-7250. For performance schedule and more information visit www.NEWSicalthemusical.com.

    It sounds like a stupid concept, and was no doubt written by an idiot. I see yet another flop in your future, you dumb homo. You're not a star; you're not a draw. A few OTT queens might come to see it, but you're a nobody to most. How pathetic are you?



  3. 3

    That's quite an accomplishment - congratulations!

    If its about Perez himself we dont have to click the link "Read the rest of the story" Instead you have the article take up most of the first page.



  5. 5

    Congrats but I really don't care about you or your life.



  6. 6

    Yawn. True Audrey, you don't have to click for more info on Perez. He puts it all out there for himself. I'm so glad he does this for himself. Other articles, you need to click and wait, then read a couple of words….it's so….how do I say it….ANNOYING!!! But, good luck Perez on the new venture. Wish you could fine tune your other adventures first.

  9. 9

    Arent you just a little too old for this? That young cast better watch out. No problem that you have no acting talent for the producers i guess.

    I love that the longest article on this site is about YOU.
    Even in the "top story" section - you usually cut it off with the "read rest of entry here"…but no, not when it's about you…then the WHOLE article is there.

    Who can we contact to make sure this does NOT happen for you?



  15. 15

    Can you PLEASE put this on 'read more?' It's very, very annoying having it take up the entre side of the page.

    All I'll say is that NOT a flattering drawing of you. Creepy…



  16. 16

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!! I GUESSED RIGHT acting but can u even sing?? that picture looks NOTHING like u which is disturbing all ur other pictures look like u in various forms that one doesnt who drew that u look like william ferrell

    Re: raypearson – $100 a seat and it is not a Broadway play? Guess I am way out of the loop on prices, would rather spend that on a payment to my Visa so I can go back to Mexico next May, slowly getting the bills paid down.

    I find it annoying that you don't make us have to click on a "Read the Rest of this Story >" button when it's a story about you. But when it's an important topic that I DO want to read about, I have to open a whole new link. Especially considering how long this entry is, compared to something small like a tweet or quote that I need to open a new page to read, it's really annoying. Just saying.

    why give actors jobs when we can give bloggers a job? right?!
    WRONG



  21. 21

    it's fucking painful to see you "act." BECAUSE YOU CAN'T AND YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO. this show must be desperate if your're in it.

    Something I know I'm not going to see.

    I hope your bowel implodes during your 5 mins on stage….That at least would be interesting to watch!
