Smash may have been banished to Saturdays, but Bombshell is going strong with upcoming dress rehearsals and the big premiere. Check out episode stills from 2×11 “The Dress Rehearsal” and 2×12 “Opening Night” below!
Following last week’s “The Surprise Party,” which saw Bombshell go through tech and several couplings among the characters, the Marilyn Monroe musical moves on to dress rehearsals in the episode airing April 13.
“The Dress Rehearsal” episode synopsis:
As Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia (Debra Messing) race to ready “Bombshell” for previews, Tom’s eagerness to prove himself may not be the best thing for the show. An onstage mishap forces Ivy (Megan Hilty) to make a choice, while tension mounts at “Hit List” as Karen (Katharine McPhee) becomes suspicious of Derek’s (Jack Davenport) motives towards her. Anjelica Huston, Jeremy Jordan, Leslie Odom, Jr., Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus also star. Jamey Sheridan and Jesse L. Martin guest star.
On April 20, Julia’s son Leo returns, as does Eileen’s penchant for throwing drinks, as Bombshell opens on Broadway.
“Opening Night” episode synopsis:
It’s “Bombshell’s” opening night. As Ivy’s (Megan Hilty) nerves get the better of her, support comes from an unlikely source. Meanwhile, Tom (Christian Borle) and Julia (Debra Messing) look to their next project. “Bombshell’s” success may be in jeopardy as Eileen’s (Anjelica Huston) issues with Richard (guest star Jamey Sheridan) come to a head. Jimmy (Jeremy Jordan) finally opens up to Karen (Katharine McPhee) about his past, but is it too little too late? Jack Davenport, Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus also star. Rosie O’Donnell, Bernadette Peters, Jesse L. Martin and Jamey Sheridan guest star.
Smash now airs Saturdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
