Smash Stars Debra Messing, Katharine McPhee, Megan Hilty to Reunite for Bombshell Concert
The one-night-only event will benefit The Actors Fund.
The highly anticipated upcoming one-night-only concert of Bombshell, the fake musical within the short-lived Broadway-themed television series Smash, has announced its principal cast and venue.
The evening will take place on June 8 at Broadway's Minskoff Theatre, and will feature original Smash cast members Christian Borle, Will Chase, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee, and Debra Messing. This Actors Fund benefit concert is produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, and codirected by Joshua Bergasse and Scott Wittman. Bergasse will also serve as choreographer.
Featuring a full score by Tony-winning Hairspray and Catch Me If You Can scribes Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, excerpts from Bombshell were seen throughout the NBC network drama's first and second seasons, which aired in 2012 and 2013. The musical explores the life of actress Marilyn Monroe from her childhood to her untimely death.
Tickets will go on sale beginning April 14. To help underwrite the cost of the concert production, and to assure that 100% of the proceeds will go to help people in performing arts and entertainment who are in need, crisis or transition, The Actors Fund also announced a Bombshell Kickstarter campaign, with donation incentives including hats, posters, and access to the final dress rehearsal, and access to a 24-hour advance pre-sale on April 13.
Additional information and stars from the Broadway community will be announced.
