'Smash' Musical 'Bombshell' Could Be Heading to Broadway!

Bombshell, the musical that was featured in the NBC series Smash, could actually be coming to Broadway in the future!

There was a one-night-only concert staging of the musical earlier this month in New York City featuring most of the show’s cast members, including Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty.

“There is a still a lot of love for Smash and a rabid fan base out there, and we’re thrilled to be able to keep the dream alive as we work towards bringing Bombshell to theatre audiences,” NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “Smash was ambitious because every episode was a complicated musical for television and we also built the foundation of the musical-within-the-musical about Marilyn’s endlessly fascinating and tumultuous life. Over the course of two seasons an entire Bombshell score was written to service Smash storylines, and now that show will have a chance to stand on its own.”

“We are so thrilled that Smash isn’t over and that Bombshell gets to live on,” said producer Craig Zadan. “The Emmy-nominated songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, including the iconic ‘Let Me Be Your Star,’ are every bit the caliber of their Tony- and Grammy-winning Broadway work. The Actors Fund benefit reinforced how alive this material is on stage and how much the audience wants to see the Marilyn Monroe musical in its entirety.”
