The second season of "Smash," the Emmy Award-winning musical drama about the creation and inner workings of a Broadway musical, kicked off Feb. 5 with a two-hour season premiere on NBC.
The first two episodes of the season — "On Broadway" and "The Fallout" — introduced a slew of new characters as well as a new tone created by new series "showrunner" and executive producer Joshua Safran. Here are musical numbers and more from the first two episodes.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. 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.
