Broadway, here they come!
If you thought May was the last time you’d ever think or hear about NBC’s Smash, think again!
No, unfortunately the show isn’t coming back on the air (seriously, NBC?!), but we have even better news!
Remember the underdog musical Hit List created by Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus’s characters Jimmy Collins and Kyle Bishop?
Well, they’re back along with Krysta Rodriguez to debut Hit List on 54 Below, Broadway’s Supper Club in New York!
The fictional-turned-reality musical will include music from Smash along with additional songs!
The synopsis of Hit List is described as:
It's the season of the
With the fins flapping on Once Upon A Time, Sephora's inspired make-up collection, and just about everyone and their mama dressing up as a mermaid now, we shan't forget the most iconic…
Ariel!!! (sha la la la la la)
Disney is taking the merwoman out of her clamshell and releasing her on DVD and BLU-RAY October 1st — that's TODAY!!
So in honor of the sea queen's latest debut, we fished for as many of the soundtrack-singing celebrities as we could and wound 'em up in our net for you to enjoy.
It's song sushi!!
Check out a pre-tonguin' Miley Cyrus rock the beat of Part of Your World (above), and then dive into the rest of 'em …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
NBC’s Smash wasn’t lucky enough to get picked up for a third season, but despite its cancellation, we’re sure the ending is going to be AH-mazing!
The show’s star, Megan Hilty, revealed that one particularly big musical number, The Big Finish, will be especially gratifying:
It was no big surprise that NBC smashed Smashed to pieces.
But, it's still sad to see it go.
Yes, the network has finally let the show out of its misery and has cancelled it after two years of being on the air. NBC recently axed a slew of its network programming, so we had a feeling the show was on the chopping block.
But, what does the show's star, Katharine McPhee have to say about it?
Smash star, Megan Hilty, is no stranger to center stage, but this time, she’s taking over radio waves. With the music video debut (above) of her single, No Cure, the singer-turned-actress-turned-singer bares her soul with honest, melancholy lyrics as she paces the confines of her apartment.
The new track can be found on Hilty’s It Happens All The Time debut album, available in stores now! In addition to this single, the record includes her takes on popular movie scores, Aimee Mann’s Wise Up from Magnolia and Damien Rice’s The Blower’s Daughter from Closer.
We’re liking Megan’s shift from Broadway, but do U think the song's a bit too sad and serious??
Oh no… it sounds like one show just might be headed for cancellation!
Just one month into season two, NBC’s Smash has not been doing too well in the ratings rat race and on Tuesday night, it hit a new series low!
The show dropped 22 percent in ratings, nearly tying the CW’s Hart Of Dixie — definitely not a good sign!
Guess not even appearances from the ever AHmazing Jennifer Hudson could get the viewers to tune in!!
Compared to the show’s pilot episode, which raked in around 11 million viewers, just a little over 2 million viewers from Tuesday night’s episode is quite the decline!!!
With this season debuting with only 4.5 million viewers, reports are now saying that the high-priced production might even be pulled BEFORE this season’s finale!
With such a superstar cast and LOTS of dramz, what could’ve gone wrong?
