Anjelica Huston, who stars as producer Eileen Rand on the NBC musical drama "Smash," will sing in the upcoming May 7 episode, "Previews." Here is a clip of "September Song."



"September Song," written by Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson for the 1938 Broadway musical Knickerbocker Holiday, was made famous by her grandfather, Walter Huston.

In the upcoming "Smash" episode, according to press notes, "Bombshell faces its first audience just as a major crisis hits Rebecca Duvall (special guest star Uma Thurman). The team of Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia (Debra Messing) scramble to fix the show when the first preview falls short, and Frank (Brian d'Arcy James) must adjust to the unwelcome return of Michael Swift (Will Chase) to his life. Dev (Raza Jaffrey) seeks reconciliation with Karen (Katharine McPhee), but explosive information about Ivy (Megan Hilty) lurks just beneath the surface." Jack Davenport and Huston also star.

Huston, who was seen on Broadway in Hamlet, won an Oscar in 1986 for Best Actress in a Supporting Role in "Prizzi's Honor" and is an Academy Award nominee for "Enemies: A Love Story" and "The Grifters." Visit her page at the Playbill Vault.
