Many of us watched and loved the NBC television series Smash and were heartbroken when it was over. Now it has new life thanks the producers Steven Spielberg, Robert Greenblat and Neil Meron who will be bring the all new musical adaptation of the show to Broadway.
The same team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, that wrote over two-dozen songs for the television show, will provide the score. It will feature a book by Bob Martin and Rick Elice. Choreography will be by Joshua Bergasse.
On working on this project Steven Spielberg said:
I am personally thrilled to be a part of this musical and its road to Broadway. Smash is near and dear to my heart, and it seems fitting that a new musical inspired by what we did on the show would eventually come to the stage. I’m beyond thrilled to be working with this incredible creative team and my producing partners, who began the Smash journey with me over ten years ago.
Smash originally aired on NBC for two seasons from February 2012 until May 2013. Many of the songs used on the show will also be used in the upcoming Broadway production.
As of right now no production dates have been announced.
