Move over McKinley High, there’s a new musical show in town and NBC’s Smash lived up to its much-hyped premiere. It’s loud, full of drama, full of beautiful eye candy and has the makings for a much longer-lived and interesting series than Glee.
The show follows Julia (Debra Messing) and Tom (Christian Borle) as they begin a new collaboration making a musical about Marilyn Monroe. Ivy (Megan Hilty), and Karen (Katherine McPhee) are vying for the starring role, and a leaked video online puts the production of it on the fast-track.
For those looking for an Edward versus Jacob style debate, the Ivy versus Karen should satisfy the lust. And the musical numbers, particularly the baseball number, were phenomenal.
But is it enough? Will the new musical in town smash Glee?
