13 Dec 2013
Hit List — the fictional musical from the NBC television drama "Smash" that was written by the characters of Jimmy Collins and Kyle Bishop, played on the series by Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus, respectively — made its much-anticipated debut Dec. 8-9 at 54 Below. Here are highlights from the concerts.
Jordan, Mientus and Krysta Rodriguez — who starred on the NBC musical drama — were joined by Carrie Manolakos (stepping into Katharine McPhee's role) in Hit List.
The score of Hit List comprised songs by various composers — both in the musical theatre industry and pop worlds — including Drew Gasparini (Make Me Bad), Joe Iconis (The Black Suits), Andrew McMahon, Tony Award nominees Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (A Christmas Story, Dogfight), Tony Award winners Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (Hairspray) and Lucie Silvas.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
