Down, Kelli! Sweet Smell of Success star O'Hara grapples with a feisty lobster at the show's closing party June 15 at Lundy's, while 2002 Tony Award winner John Lithgow (far right) embraces Jack Noseworthy, something he never got to do in the musical. In Sweet Smell, Noseworthy played Lithgow's worst enemy, a jazz musician who was cuddling up to his beloved sister (played by O'Hara).
Lithgow won the only Award of Sweet Smell's seven Tony nomations. Sweet Smell of Success opened at the Beck March 14. Sony Classical released the new Marvin Hamlisch-Craig Carnelia-John Guare musical on CD April 23.
