'Smash' Musical Heading to Broadway!

Smash, a New Musical is coming to Broadway!

Producers Steven Spielberg, Robert Greenblatt and Neil Meron have announced today that a live stage adaptation inspired by the groundbreaking NBC series of the same name is in the works with original Smash songwriters Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman penning the score.

The new musical will apparently depart a bit from the original storyline from the TV show, but the main characters, Julia and Tom (the writers), as well as Ivy and Karen (the stars), will still be central to the story. No further plot details were announced.

“I am personally thrilled to be a part of this musical and its road to Broadway,” Steven Spielberg said in a statement. “’Smash’ is near and dear to my heart, and it seems fitting that a new musical inspired by what we did on the show would eventually come to the stage. I’m beyond thrilled to be working with this incredible creative team and my producing partners, who began the ‘Smash’ journey with me over ten years ago.”
