Smash show Hit list to be staged
Hit List, the show-within-a-show from cancelled musical TV series Smash is to be staged for real.
The nightclub 54 Below has announced it will present two world-premiere concert performances of Hit List on December 9 featuring some of the stars from the series, including Jeremy Jordan and Krysta Rodriguez.
On Smash, the musical Hit List was a gritty, low-tech off-Broadway show that became a theater community darling and later competed with the glitzy Broadway-bound musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe called Bombshell.
Hit List songs were written by Drew Gasparini, Joe Iconis, Andrew McMahon, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and Lucie Silvas.
Smash was cancelled this summer after two seasons, but is still airing on Sky Atlantic.
