Theatermania

"The smart and spiffy new edition of NEWSical the Musical, now at The Kirk Theatre, makes it abundantly clear that the heir to the musical comedy revue format that was owned for so long by Forbidden Broadway has finally been found. Directed at a wonderfully furious pace the show will have audiences laughing from start to finish." Full Review

LA Splash

"Luckily, we found a fun and witty show that we can recommend. NEWSical the Musical is a light and fun romp through the news of the day with four talented performers that you can’t help but like. They take various news items of the day – and turn them into songs and sketches that garner loads of laughs from the audience." Full Review

The Huffington Post

"NEWSical, written by Rick Crom, is the long-running Off-Broadway musical comedy that lampoons everyone in the news from Miley Cyrus to The Pope in 90 minutes of hilarious skits and songs that update as quickly as the news changes. It's a news magazine of sorts (think more along the lines of The Daily Show than 60 Minutes) that's ever changing and always hilarious." Full Review

Cabaret Exchange

"Indeed, Newsical has much to recommend it.  Although the product I saw hasn’t yet lived up to its potential, it has a wealth of scandalous material with which to work, and might very well evolve into an enduring hit.  Let’s hope it gets there." Full Review

Backstage

"This "Newsical" could be more consistent, but the cast goes a long way toward redeeming its deficiencies. And any town with an often funny topical revue in it is a happier place." Full Review

Act Three - The Reviews

"It's not really that good, but it's lighthearted, silly, and delivers what it promises: entertainment. It's not really a musical, nor is it a play; it's really just like an extended 'SNL; skit...The ensemble is OK. In various combinations they did their shtick, but I think even the performers know who their audience is and how utterly unimportant it is to be good. For the price of a TDF ticket it was well worth the 75 minutes of humor. Much more and even a tourist might be disappointed." Full Review

CurtainUp

for a previous production "I was particularly taken with Joan Rivers and Nancy Pelosi discussing the merits of Botox, a very Jewish Ruth Bader Ginsberg advising a very Latina Sonia Sotomayor on what it's like to be a Supreme (think Diana Ross), a newsflash about the mysterious case of Snow White and those suspicious and disrespectful bearded men, and President Obama trying to order pizza but stymied by all the options. " Full Review
