Storyline

The road to and success on Broadway of the musical is not easy. And winning the coveted Tony as Best Musical is even more difficult, that which is the ultimate goal. Such trials and tribulations are shown for a handful of shows, their creative teams and their performers. There is competition amongst the performers for roles, competition amongst the shows not only for box office but also limited investor dollars and that final Tony prize, and competition amongst those ultimately hired in the cast and crew for what they want to see happen in the show, both for the good of the show and their own personal benefit. And sometimes, personal life gets in the way of these professional goals. These problems not only happen for those new or working their ways up the ranks, such as performers Karen Cartwright and Ivy Lynn, and the writing team of Jimmy Collins and Kyle Bishop, but also seasoned veterans, such as the writing team of Tom Levitt and Julia Houston, womanizing director Derek Wills, ...

Not a Glee knock off, perhaps even better
22 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Before the show was even on the air, I could feel the internal eye rolls coming. Seems like whenever an idea is popular these days, its re-done over and over and over again (Twilight, Vampire Diaries, True Blood, etc) and Smash looked like just another knock off of that little singing and dancing show Glee. No doubt Glee was the inspiration here, there will be singing and there will be dancing but they're not the same thing. Smash is more of a behind-the- scenes look at Broadway musicals, going over how they cast, to how they get investors, and of course there is some cliché drama in there, some rivalries and affairs, but all juicy shows need some of that here and there. What Smash also manages to do perhaps better than Glee even is having better dance numbers and better music, oh and having New York City being your backdrop doesn't hurt either. To anyone boycotting the show because they think it's another recycled idea, or maybe just weren't interested in watching people break into song (Smash doesn't break into song too often, don't worry), I'd say give it a try. I couldn't see any fans of Glee not equally loving Smash as well, I think most people will be pleasantly surprised.
