Finally after weeks of teasing us with the Marilyn showcase, the show will finally make its debut on NBC’s Smash
tonight at 10p. An event that should go smoothly finds itself in a position that Derek wonders if the production is cursed. The boiler is broken and it making Marilyn hot and not in a good way. Ivy’s mother has come in to town and she is a Broadway legend. Who better to play that person than Bernadette Peters who is one herself. Peters is not supportive of her daughter and that will make things difficult for Ivy as she makes her workshop debut. An affair is revealed. A cast member falls off of the stage. And I can go on, but you know want to see what else is going to happen. Oh and did I mention by the end of the night someone will be fired from the show.
So tune in for Smash, as the show gives us a retrospective of all of the original music to date and a song sung by Miss Bernadette Peters herself. Can’t make it to a Broadway show or afford it, then this is the next best thing.
