Album release smashes boundaries
Broadway show within a show on TV’s Smash is getting its own cast album. US network NBC and Columbia Records release a 22-song cast album for Bombshell, the mythical Broadway play featured in the show, in the US on February 12. Katharine McPhee (pictured), Megan Hilty and other Smash cast members perform the songs. Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have talked about launching Bombshell as an actual Broadway show but haven’t taken any steps to make that a reality. Smash airs in Australia on Channel 7 and pay TV station SoHo.
