Songs From Tonight's Episode Of NBC's Musical Drama 'Smash' Available Today On ITunes

NEW YORK, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Select songs from tonight's episode of NBC's Golden Globe-nominated musical drama series "Smash" (Tuesdays, 10-11pm ET) will be available today from NBCUniversal Television Consumer Products and Columbia Records in the "Smash" iTunes store: http://www.itunes.com/NBCSmash

The songs available from tonight's episode, entitled "Musical Chairs," include:

"Heart Shaped Wreckage" – performed by Katharine McPhee and Jeremy Jordan

"Ce N'est Pas ma Faute (It's Not My Fault)" – performed by Sean Hayes

"Rewrite This Story" – performed by Katharine McPhee and Jeremy Jordan

In addition, the episode features the song "The National Pastime," which is featured on the Broadway-caliber cast recording of Bombshell, the musical within "Smash," that is available now.  Bombshell contains 22 original songs, complete with liner notes detailing the plot of Bombshell.  The soundtrack features stars Katherine McPhee (Karen), Megan Hilty ( Ivy Lynn), and other cast members performing the original music created for the show's musical-within-a-musical by Tony and Grammy award-winning duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.

In tonight's episode, new circumstances give rise to conflicts as Karen ( Katharine McPhee), Tom ( Christian Borle), Julia ( Debra Messing) and Derek ( Jack Davenport) adjust to their new surroundings. Tensions at "Liaisons" are also coming to a boil, ensuring that the show will find its place in Broadway history.  Meanwhile, Eileen ( Anjelica Huston) may have found the key to saving "Bombshell" with the help of her daughter, Katie (guest star Grace Gummer). Megan Hilty, Jeremy Jordan and Andy Mientus also star.  Sean Hayes, Jesse L. Martin, Daniel Sunjata and Grace Gummer guest star.

"Smash," is a musical drama that celebrates the beauty and heartbreak of the Broadway theater as it follows a cross section of dreamers and schemers who all have one common desire – to be a "Smash."  Evolving from an idea of executive producer and multiple Emmy and Oscar winner Steven Spielberg ("ER," "Schindler's List"), the series unites the hit-making Broadway writing team of Julia Houston ( Debra Messing, Emmy winner, "Will & Grace") and Tom Levitt ( Christian Borle, "Legally Blonde: The Musical") with producer Eileen Rand ( Anjelica Huston, Oscar winner, "Prizzi's Honor") to create a new musical based on the life of Marilyn Monroe, and seasoned chorus girl Ivy Lynn (Hilty, "9 to 5: The Musical") vies with newcomer Karen Cartwright (McPhee, "American Idol") for the role of a lifetime.

In Season 2, the "Bombshell" team is one step closer to achieving their Broadway dream. The Boston run was the success the team was hoping for, but they are all about to learn even a charmed show cannot avoid paying for sins of the past.  Across the Brooklyn Bridge, Jimmy Collins ( Jeremy Jordan) and Kyle Bishop ( Andy Mientus) are toiling away on a rock musical of their own, which could either become "Bombshell's" biggest rival, or yet one more Broadway false start.  Guest stars in season two include Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson ("American Idol," "Dreamgirls"), Emmy winner Sean Hayes ("Will & Grace"), Jesse L. Martin ("Rent," "Law & Order"), and Liza Minnelli (Tony, Oscar, Emmy, and Golden Globe winner.)  In addition to Spielberg, the executive producers include Joshua Safran ("Gossip Girl"), Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey (" United States of Tara," "The Borgias"), Craig Zadan and Neil Meron (" Chicago," "Hairspray"), Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman ("Hairspray," "Catch Me If You Can"), Jim Chory ("Heroes," "American Dreams") and Theresa Rebeck (" Mauritius"). 

"Smash" is from Universal Television in association with DreamWorks Television.
