Megan Hilty Katharine McPhee

February 10, 2012 by staff 

Megan Hilty Katharine McPhee, NBC is hoping “Smash,” premiering 9 p.m. Monday, is, well, a smash. Me, too. This brilliant new series takes viewers along on a roller coaster ride behind the scenes of putting on a Broadway show and into the lives of those who work in the industry every day. A place where, sometimes, dreams become reality.

Yes, there are songs but in appropriate places and what a joyful noise they provide. Actresses Megan Hilty and Katharine McPhee are incredible as a chorus line performer who wants to break out and a newbie who wants to break into the business, respectively, and both want the role of Marilyn in — what else — “Marilyn the Musical.”

Mind you, Hilty has already starred on Broadway in “9 to 5: The Musical” and “Wicked.” The discovery here is that the amazing voice of 2006 “American Idol” runner-up McPhee isn’t her only talent. She can act, and well. Didn’t really get that about her in her first film “House Bunny.”

It’s something everyone will know from the first appearance on screen leading into the first bars of McPhee singing “You Are Beautiful” as an unknown brimming with talent at an audition for “Marilyn.”
