Watching the NBC series Smash, it’s easy to think that some of those musical numbers in the show just happen. But, inside scoop here, someone is working tirelessly behind the scenes to create that fantastic choreography. That someone is Joshua Bergasse, the show’s choreographer who won an Emmy last fall for his work on the Broadway-based show.
We sat down on the New York set of Smash recently to talk to Bergasse about his tough Emmy competition against many familiar faces and how working on Season 2 has been very different from the first.
AfterElton: Congratulations on the Emmy. Obviously, when you are creating these numbers, you are not really thinking, ‘Oh, this could really bring me an Emmy,’ right? What’s the process for submitting?
Joshua Bergasse: You can submit three routines per choreographer. »
