*La Toya Jackson will take over for Jackée Harry in Rick Crom’s off-Broadway production of NEWSical the Musical, which merges celebrity and political scandals through music.
“I’ve wanted to do [theatre] but on Broadway the shows play for such a long, extended time,” she told the New York Post.
Jackson begins her one-week limited engagement on Sept. 3 at Theatre Row’s Kirk Theatre.
According to production notes, “NEWSical the Musical is the forever changing, completely un-sanitized musical mockery of all the news that’s fit to spoof. From Honey Boo Boo to Paula Deen, Andrew Weiner to A-Rod, marriage equality to Kim and Kanye’s baby North West, NEWSical sets all of today’s biggest pop culture headlines to music.”
Jackson is the latest on a growing roster of stars to lead NEWSical. In addition to Jackée Harry, the show in the last year has welcomed guest headliners Perez Hilton, Tony nominee Andrea McArdle, Cheri Oteri and Carson Kressley.
