We have explosive news, literally.
To breakthe musical drama that aired on NBC for two seasons from 2012 to 2013 and chronicled the making of fiction Marilyn Monroe musical Bombcould be heading to Broadway, according to the show’s original executive producer and composer.
On May 22, the producer Neil Meronwho also produced the 2002 film adaptation Chicago and the 2007 film adaptation of hair sprayshared a series of photos and videos from a live playback of a stage version of To break.
Meron captioned the post, “#Smash is alive and well! Last week @bobgreenblattpics myself and an anonymous producing partner, who has many amazing movie credits on his resume, proudly brought together this creative team that breathes new life to our television series”
That “anonymous producer partner” Meron refers to? Nobody but a movie icon Steven Spielberg! The Oscar-winning director, who appears in photos from the reading, comes from his acclaimed revival of West Side Story. He clearly has the Broadway bug!
