Attention all fans of the TV show ‘Smash‘ – pay attention. All 10 of you.
Seriously, this was a show that I really liked. Did you watch it? Since ‘Smash‘ was cancelled, maybe the question should be did you ever hear of it?
For those of you who haven’t, just a quick background. ‘Smash‘ focused on the New York City theater community, specifically Karen Cartwright (played by American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee), a girl from the midwest who is trying to make it to Broadway. Along with Steven Spielberg as one of the executive producers, ‘Smash‘ starred Debra Messing (of Will and Grace fame), Angelica Houston, Megan Hilty, Jeremy Jordan (Tony award nominated for his lead role in Newsies) and an assortment of other musically talented actors and actresses. There was alot of singing and dancing as they showed different sides of being a struggling Broadway performer.
If you’re missing ‘Smash’, here’s a clip—
In the second (and sadly, final) season of ‘Smash‘, one of the many plot lines focused on two aspiring musicians/playwrights and their development of an off-broadway show called ‘Hit List’, which was a bit reminiscent of another old favorite, Rent.
Suprisingly, ‘Hit List‘ is a real show. It will be performed one night only, December 9, at 54 Below in New York City. Some ‘Smash’ regulars (Jeremy Jordan, Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus) will be in this performance and it sounds like it’s going to be nothing short of spectacular, especially for fans of ‘Smash’.
Sadly, tickets for ‘Hit List’ should be as easy to get as those for the surprise Billy Joel concert at the Paramount this week.
