DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Wednesday - SMASH, Soho, 7.30pm

WHERE did we leave the cast again? Oh yeah . . . that’s right — Ivy was in her dress­in­groom about to eat a fist­ful of pills. A big dis­play of Method act­ing. Was it be­cause Derek the di­rec­tor didn’t love her enough, or be­cause Karen got to play Mar­i­lyn when it should’ve been her, or be­cause she thought she was Mar­i­lyn? We’ll never know. They’re all go­ing to have other things to worry about soon: a com­pet­ing Mar­i­lyn mu­si­cal. Broad­way’s lethal, but this is what they wanted. Two big new stars in the cast this sea­son and we meet one tonight: Jen­nifer Hud­son.
