Perez Hilton is heading to Off-Broadway
17 August 2012

Perez Hilton excitedly shared some news with his readers today: he’s heading to the stage.

The self-described ‘queen of all media’ will join the off-Broadway musical revue, NEWSical the Musical, on 8 September for a four weeks.

The show sets headlines of  the day’s news and pop culture headlines to song.  Composer-lyricist Rick Crom will add new satirical spoofs to the show to coincide with Hilton’s participation including a Chick-fil-A number and a song about Hilton himself.

‘Dreams do come true, if you believe. And I believe, big time!,’ Hilton says. ‘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!’

Producer Tom D’Angora says the reason for adding Hilton to the cast is a simple one: ‘What do you do when your show needs to sell tickets? You bring in a celebrity. Perez Hilton was the perfect choice because our show is basically the musical version of his highlarious website.
