The Broadway concert performance of Smash‘s Marilyn Monroe-themed musical-within-a-show, “Bombshell,” is taking place Monday night at the the Minskoff Theatre. And for the unlucky many unable to score a ticket, there are some behind-the-scenes photos and videos (plus other trinkets) to enjoy.
The one-night-only event, to benefit The Actors Fund, features Smash cast members such as Megan Hilty, Debra Messing, Anjelica Huston, Christian Borle, Will Chase and Katharine McPhee. Throughout the hours preceding, Playbill‘s Instagram account and other insiders have shared backstage photos as well as snippets of rehearsal footage, some sampled below.
But I would say the most fun to be had at home is from flipping through the online Playbill for the event, which features the full song list, fake ads (TheEllisReport.com!) and bios for “Ivy Lynn” et al. (Who paid tribute to Kyle Bishop, R.I.P?)
Alas, as Playbill reported, “various union regulations” made recording the event “impossible.” So these teases will have to make do.
