"Smash" Musical Bombshell May Live On in Charity Concert

News   "Smash" Musical Bombshell May Live On in Charity Concert
Bombshell, the Marilyn Monroe musical that was at the heart of the now-canceled NBC musical series "Smash," may be heard in a charity concert.

Marc Shaiman, who co-wrote the score for the fictitious musical with Scott Wittman, told The Hollywood Reporter that a charitable organization is interested in mounting a concert featuring songs from Bombshell. "A concert could feature the cast and additional performers from Broadway. That would be a wonderful way for the show to live on," Shaiman told the industry paper.

Shaiman and Wittman were recently Emmy-nominated for outstanding music and lyrics for "Hang the Moon," one of the nearly 40 songs they wrote for "Smash," which had a two-season run on NBC. That song featured vocals by Tony winner Bernadette Peters and Megan Hilty. "We are very proud of this song with Bernadette and Megan," Wittman told the Hollywood Reporter.

The duo's newest songs can be heard in the London production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, which features direction by Sam Mendes.
