Smash Musical Gets One-Night Broadway Bow — Who Will Star In It?

Smash Bombshell Broadway

Let me (briefly) be your star!

“Bombshell,” the musical at the heart of Smash Season 1, is heading to Broadway – for one night only.

Per BroadwayWorld.com, The Actors Fund has confirmed that Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will produce a benefit performance of the Marilyn Monroe-centric opus on June 15, 2015.

Playbill says that Megan Hilty, among other Smash cast members, is expected to participate in the one-night-only staging, which will include all 22 songs from Smash‘s show-within-a-show.

Tickets will go on sale in early 2015; check ActorsFund.org for updates.

    I would love for them to televise this!!

    I absolutely loved this creative show. Season 2 had its problems with being in too many places at once, but this show was great. I never missed an episode. The music was fantastic and it was a great way to escape from the world for an hour. Any chance on bringing this show back?

    I loved Smash and the season one finale with Kathryn McPhee was amazing. I never saw this Megan Hilty version and she, too, was fantastic. I’m guessing they had multiple endings filmed and went with McPhee. Wish I lived in New York so I could see it on Broadway.

      No, McPhee played Marilyn in season one and the beginning of season 2 but Hilty ends up with the role sometime mid-season. Both versions aired.

      Karen (McPhee) left the show to do an original show with writers she found. Derek follows her to direct. One writer dies from auto accident, the other is a jerk who ends up with Karen against the fans wishes. Derek gets Ivy (Hilty) pregnant and stays with her. Last episode ends on Tony Awards night. Everyone has a happy ending pretty much. Like I said before I think most fans were hoping for a Karen/Derek happy ending even though some were bothered by age difference.

        I loved smash..season 2 was a trainwreck,I don’t know why they had to divert from the bombshell storyline for Karen & Derek…the writers ruined this amazing show

    Televise it! Sell it on DVD! This would be amazing and a lot of fans want to see this.

    • Andrea says:

      I second televising Bombshell. Can’t NBC and Broadway work out some kind of deal? Plus,NBC is into live performances these days.

      I HATE Will Chase’s Luke on Nashville. However, dude can sing, and I loved him in SMASH. He needs to be playing Joe on Broadway!

  5. Carola says:

    OOOH! YES! I have to go to this! Hope all the cast members are on board!

    I sooooo want to go. When then did a staging of Smash’s other musical (was it HitList?) – that sold out way too fast, I missed it. I am fearful that a 1-night only ticket price will price me out of the market… you just know its gonna cost $$$

  7. Et al says:

    I want to go to there!!!!

  8. Lei says:

    I had a feeling they would turn SMASH into a real Broadway show. You don’t put that much money into a “musical” tv show and not have a lot of materials. They should do it live, like Peter Pan. I would watch!

  9. Ann says:

    Can NBC make this their next live staged musical??!!!

  10. Linda says:

    Please, please televise!!!!!
