Katharine McPhee Will Reunite with 'Smash' Stars During a Special Live Stream

Katharine McPhee and some other stars from the NBC series Smash will be reuniting during a live stream event TODAY (March 20)!

Kat will join Jeremy Jordan, Krysta Rodriguez, and Andy Mientus on the next episode of the Broadway Jackbox series, hosted by former Dear Evan Hansen actors Andrew Barth Feldman and Alex Boniello.

Broadway Jackbox airs on Tuesdays and Fridays at 6pm EST on Twitch. The show will be raising money for The Actors Fund during the stream.

“The first ones were such a blast,” Andrew said in a statement (via BroadwayWorld.com). “They completely achieved our goal of creating something silly, fun, and distracting amidst this craziness, but Alex and I both realized we could use this to give back to our community in a more concrete way. With the theater community in such a state of flux, it only seemed right to give to The Actors Fund who are doing all they can to help our industry through this insane, unprecedented time. So let’s have some fun and do some good! And also, as the self-appointed head of the #ReviveSmash campaign, this is big for me.”

Kat, Jeremy, Krysta, and Andy‘s characters on Smash were all part of the musical Hit List, which was a competitor to Bombshell.

“.@andrewbfeldman & @AlexBoniello are getting the smash cast together. @andrewbfeldman & @AlexBoniello are getting the smash cast together. I REPEAT @andrewbfeldman & @AlexBoniello are getting the SMASH cast together on #BwayJackbox!” Kat tweeted.

On Thursday night, Kat had Jeremy as a guest on her own Instagram Live. Watch a video below!

Thank you for picking up what we put down, for running with it in all of your amazing, weird, monstrous ways and for being such an important part of this show and our experience making it.”

Daybreak is a new series coming to Netflix later this month and the first trailer has arrived!

Here is the official synopsis: High school isn’t the end of the world… until it is.

Following an eclectic group of survivors as they navigate this strange and treacherous world, Daybreak is part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale.

The new series stars Matthew Broderick, Krysta Rodriguez, Colin Ford, Sophie Simnett, Austin Crute, Alyvia Alyn Lind, Cody Kearsley, Jeante Godlock, and Gregory Kasyan.

Catch the first season of Daybreak on October 24.
