Megan Hilty on possibility of joining full stage Bombshell production: 'That would be amazing!'

Comments +

Smash came to an abrupt end two years ago, but the former NBC series has had a recent Renaissance on Broadway. Earlier this month, the cast staged a performance of Bombshell, the musical within the show about the life of Marilyn Monroe. The whole cast returned for the June 8 event, and according to Smash star Megan Hilty, the muscle memory was still there.

Smash fans’ dreams came true earlier this week when the cast reunited for a one-night only concert performance of the show’s musical-within-the-musical, Bombshell. And the cast loved it, too.

Here's what you missed from the one-night-only performance of the Bombshell musical from Smash

Comments +

Broadway was dark Monday night, as is tradition—everywhere but the Minskoff Theatre, that is. Normally, the Minskoff houses The Lion King, a boisterous crowd-pleaser that plays as well in Peoria as it does in Times Square. On Monday, though, it turned its stage over to something smaller and weirder: a one-night-only concert performance of Bombshell, the Marilyn Monroe musical-within-a-musical featured on NBC’s dearly departed theater drama Smash.

Smash Recap

Leave it to Smash – or at least Smash’s self-referential second season – to end on a winking note of meta commentary.

“Give ‘em that big finish And they’ll forget what came before Just give ‘em that big finish But always keep one eye on the door …Let’s give ‘em that big finish And leave ‘em wanting more!”

Smash

Well, it’s official: In just two weeks, Smash will face its final curtain call.

The show’s cancellation has been a foregone conclusion for months now, ever since NBC announced that it was moving the musical drama to Saturday nights. And similarly, there’s not much left to say about how Smash repeatedly squandered its incredible potential. (For more on that, click on the link at the beginning of this paragraph.)

If a Jonathan Larson-inspired storyline falls in the woods (a.k.a. Saturday night around 8 p.m.), and it features two performers who were actually incredibly close to Larson when he died, but never sees fit to actually mention Larson’s name, does it make a sound?
