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.

Perez Reviews: Avenue Q!

We had never seen Avenue Q before, but all that (thankfully) changed Sunday night!

We made it a point to see the musical during our most recent run of show-going in NYC, and we're sooo glad we did!

Avenue Q is the original Book Of Mormon!!! Sorta literally! A lot of the Mormon team worked on Avenue Q too, like the amazing Robert Lopez.

This new production is running at the New World Stages, where we saw Rent last fall. The theaters seat close to 600 people, and though it's technically "Off-Broadway", its still in the heart of the theater district. And such great shows as Rent and Q are playing there!

We were so pleasantly surprised by Avenue Q! We were expecting debauchery and great comedy, which we got, but we also got some killer songs and a whole lot of heart! We soooo related to the characters in the show. Yes, puppets!

In addition to the raciness and salaciousness, there was also a lot of emotion and depth!

Loved! Loved! Loved it!

And all of the actors were so good too! Those roles are vocally demanding!!!

And that Darren Bluestone is so dreamy! Ha

Such a fun time!!!
