We remember when we first heard about this show, there were two names attached to it that really stuck out for us: Anjelica Huston and Steven Spielberg. The former because … okay, she's a freakin' LEGEND! Having her attached to any project is just pure gold! And the latter because we couldn't quite understand why Steven Spielberg, of all people, would be interested in a show about musical theater.
But here's the thing. What we failed to remember is that at his core, Steven is about creativity. He's about exploring what the imagination can accomplish. Truly, there is no place on Earth that pushed the limits of dreaming and creating more than the theatre!
So, check out the video (above) and hear Steven explain for himself why Smash is soon to be one in it's own right.
