Songs From Megan Hilty and Rachel York Remind Us Why Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

In the hit NBC series "Smash," Megan Hilty plays a struggling Broadway actress looking for her big leading lady break in a musical about Marilyn Monroe. In real life, Hilty will take to the Encores! stage at City Center to play gold-digger Lorelei Lee in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes — a role made famous by Monroe herself in the film version, and by Carol Channing in the original 1949 Broadway musical. In rehearsal, Hilty and co-star Rachel York (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Les Misérables) were joined by dancers Jared Grimes and Phillip Attmore to give Playbill a musical glimpse of the upcoming performance directed by John Rando. Songs included "A Little Girl From Little Rock," "Mamie is Mimi" and "I Love What I'm Doing." For a Playbill Diva Talk with Hilty, click here.

Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
