Monday, December 12, 2011, the Broadway community descended on New York City's glamorous Museum of Modern Art to get their first official look at NBC's upcoming new musical drama series SMASH. BroadwayWorld was on the red carpet to catch up with all of the show's stars on their big night!
Last night's Broadway screening was introduced by playwright and series creator Theresa Rebeck, and featured pre-show appearances by Meghan Hilty, Marc Shaiman, Scott Wittman, Michael Mayer, Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Jack Davenport, Raza Jaffrey and more introducing the show. After the screening of the show's premiere episode, which received an enthusiastic ovation, the audience was given a glimpse at some upcoming scenes and musical numbers from the season, and to put it mildly...WE CAN'T WAIT!
On February, 6, 2012, the highly anticipated new musical drama series, SMASH, will premiere on NBC. Developed from an idea of Executive Producer and multiple Emmy and Oscar winner Steven Spielberg, SMASH explores the subculture of musical theatre; celebrating the beauty and heartbreak of Broadway.
Boasting a stellar cast from stage and screen, SMASH stars Emmy award winning actress Debra Messing, Academy Award winner Anjelica Huston, Katharine McPhee, Jack Davenport, Tony Award nominee Christian Borle, Megan Hilty and Tony Award nominee Brian d'Arcy James.
