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.
