Filed under Smash

Cancellation was just the beginning for SMASH. Though the series was axed by NBC in 2013 (after being shifted to Saturdays), the show has lived on in various performances throughout the years — the recent Actors Fund benefit that featured BOMBSHELL’s music (and the show’s cast performing it), as well as a lower-key HIT LIST […]

What do you do when NBC cancels your television show and your resume includes work on Broadway? You freaking sing about it (and maybe drink a little) at the Tony Awards.

It’s official: after being banished to Saturdays (and airing its finale on a random Sunday), SMASH won’t be returning to NBC for a third season. SMASH was one of my favorite pilots last year, and it’s been a rough ride since then. Hopefully when it concludes on May 26th, there will be enough closure. Will […]

SMASH returns to NBC tonight and things will be a little different: there are new characters, some old characters are gone, and there’s a second show to contend with.

Have you been missing SMASH? The new season may feature a lot of cast tweaks (bye nearly all of the painfully annoying season 1 characters!), but it sure doesn’t look like the show has missed a beat in the new trailer for season 2. In fact, it’s making me pretty excited for the show to […]

On SMASH, poor Ivy has her entire world falling apart around her. After losing her dream role of Marilyn Monroe, you’d think things couldn’t get much worse, but alas, it’s television and they will.

SMASH Recap: The Cost of Art

Filed under #1 featured, Smash

The beauty of this week’s SMASH was in its simplicity. In one hour of television, the central organizing principle of the show’s fictitious “Marilyn: the Musical” was clearly explained through each character. “The Cost of Art” demonstrated that a successful stage production requires shared sacrifice from every participant. No matter whether those concessions are personal, […]
