NEWSical The Musical and A Musical About Star Wars will arrive on Las Vegas' V Theatre stage this November. Located at The Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood, the Off-Broadway shows are brought to the Strip in repertory by Tom D'Angora and Michael D’Angora.
Spoofing on all news possible, musical comedy NEWSical The Musical by Rick Crom features sketches and original music numbers to parody everything from celebrity news to politics. The show ran Off-Broadway for a decade, and has previously played a sold-out, limited run in Las Vegas at The Majestic Repertory last spring. Performances begin November 17.
Second to arrive on the stage will be A Musical About Star Wars which follows super fans Scott and Taylor as they hope to garner attention from Comic Con presenters with their unauthorized musical about the fan favorite franchise. Featuring music and lyrics by Billy Recce, A Musical About Star Wars has a book penned by Tom D’Angora, Taylor Crousore, and Scott Richard Foster. Performances begin November 19.
