If you only do one thing today, make it this.
Smash is the much anticipated, heavily advertised, prime time, major network, Broadway drama about the making of a Broadway musical.
It’s about Broadway, it’s shot on Broadway, it’s written by a Broadway writer, directed by a Broadway Director, and stars a whole bunch of Broadway peeps.
And if there was one thing that could have an atomic bomb-like impact on Broadway theatergoing, Smash is it.
Sure Glee is great, and makes singing showtunes not as geeky as it used to be, but Glee is more of a pop-sical, whereas Smash is the real thing to the core.
And even a mediocre showing on the Nielsen ratings chart means that millions of people will be getting intimately acquainted with the making of a Broadway musical.
So imagine, for a second, if it was more than mediocre. Imagine what a smash Smash would mean to theatergoing and theatermaking all over this country.
So watch it. And force your friends to watch it.

Like most TheaterMakers, I got started in “the biz” early…
I drafted this blog in 2020. And then, well ….
