“(Single Ladies) wasn’t in the original set list, but when we were putting the show up in Vegas Ryan just goes ‘I want to see Single Ladies.’ When we had to teach the dancers Chris was like ‘I know, I got this’ and went off with his headphones and ran it through a few times and was done. I can’t take my eyes off of him when he performs it. He really takes it and makes it his own each night.”—
"This year, the main thing that I felt was that I got to play her really edgy. It’s a really different side of Pam. We haven’t seen it, we’ve suspected it, but she hasn’t been unleashed ever. This year I feel is her most raw."
“Well now is probably the best time to announce that there may or may not be a complete ‘Party Down’ reunion on this season of ‘Childrens Hospital,’ as their ‘Party Down’ characters. I don’t want to give it all away, but enjoy.”—Rob Corddry talks ‘Childrens Hospital.’
One of the questions I Have about Smash is that how are they going to prolong the Marylin as a musical storyline past the first season? I wonder if the show is married to the Marylin the Musical storyline after it opens, or will the show follow the journey of the characters more?
Yay, more ‘Smash’ questions!
While I can’t answer this for sure, especially since the show is still being written, I can theorize with you, xtinsj. The character Julia (Debra Messing) is quick to point out that launching a musical can take years.
As you said, the show could show the opening of the musical during season 1, then continue to follow the characters. Or it could take more than one season to launch the show, or start a new production each season. There are many possibilities. Unfortunately, we’ll just have to wait to see.
