The song by Tony Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray) premieres on the Feb. 20 episode of the musical drama series about the conflicting (and harmonizing) personalities behind the making of a new Broadway musical.

"Mr. & Mrs. Smith"
 

Megan Hilty (Wicked, 9 to 5) plays Ivy Lynn, a 10-year veteran of the chorus hoping to be cast as Marilyn Monroe in the new show about the tragic star's life. Recurring guest star Will Chase (Billy Elliot, The Full Monty) plays actor Michael, who is to be cast as Marilyn's baseball-star husband Joe DiMaggio. In the imagined show number, Joe and Marilyn wonder what it would like to be anonymous man and wife — plain old "Mr. and Mrs. Smith."
