This long-running musical revue/sketch comedy show lampoons current events, newsmakers, celebrities, and politicians. Think 'The Daily Show' set to music. More…
'Newsical's' songs and sketches parody all of today's biggest headlines, from politics to pop culture, celebrities to social trends. It's 'Saturday Night Live' meets 'Laugh-In' meets 'The Nightly News' meets Broadway. Songs and material are updated on a regular basis.

Don't see it if you're not into low-budget productions where actors unknowingly have their flies down and an obvious plant cackles in the audience.
See it if You are curious (as I was) about what it was. Some songs and references were topical, others were very old, some even were taped.

See it if you follow current political and pop cultural events. If you don't like this edition, come back again, topics change like headlines in 75mns
Don't see it if you enjoyed its original two-act/two-hour format. With the perversity of current headlines, this clever dud repeated same gag four times.
