In a one-night-only concert engagement, Jeremy Jordan, Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus look back at their time on Smash and sing the songs that inspired the creation of their characters, as well as trunk songs from the “Bishop & Collins” songbook. Audiences can expect to hear songs featured in the second season of Smash, as well as contemporary classics from the musical theater canon and some of the pop/rock tunes featured on the show.
In season two of Smash, Jordan, Mientus, and Rodriguez played burgeoning musical theater writers “Jimmy Collins,” “Kyle Bishop,” and an ambitious actress “Ana Vargas,” respectively. The three actors have since starred in Hit List, the meta-musical from the second season of Smash at 54 Below last winter, and have continued to excel both on stage and screen while remaining the closest of friends.
The evening reunites the trio with director Joshua Safran, who was the showrunner of season two of Smash, and music director Benjamin Rauhala, who collaborated with the team on Hit List. The evening was concieved by Rauhala and Safran, and is produced by Rauhala.
