would it be could if it actually ended on Broadway for real? most of the singers and dancers are not just actors in the show, they have that background.
Just watched it on Hulu, and I really enjoyed it, even though I knew exactly what was going to happen. (Couldn't wait. Had to get spoiled. :D)
Regarding Karen playing the role...they mentioned several times that the understuwasps not trained in the role until the preview/tech is done. She would have seen the role performed, and would know the songs (she didn't seem to have a problem with the words) fairly well, but the movements, when to be where, she would not know.
I thought the last song was horrible and Kat didn't sound great. She sounded good otherwise.
Ugh. If Julia's husband is not the father....even still, there will be the question till she pops and the baby can be tested.
I like Ivy. I don't see her attempting suicide; it's not in her character.
Ellis...don't think that's the last we will see of him.
Show won't be back till midseason next year so a long wait.
I have been thinking about that ... and remember that they were working on an adoption ... so while there may be questions ... it may turn out for the best in the long run.Quote:

I thought Smash was just okay - not awful and not wonderful - just okay. I love Katherine McPhee (she should have won Idol hands down). She played the young, naive girl very well. The contrast between her character and the ruthlessly ambitious, jaded Ivy character was a bit too marked. I wanted to like Ivy, but her nasty treatment of Kat and Dev revealing his cheating with absolutely no guilt made me dislike her immensely. Also, in what universe would Uma Thurman EVER be cast to play Marilyn Monroe. Except for the blonde hair and large chest, she is way too tall, too skinny, and too plain faced to be the very curvy, doll faced Marilyn.
I don't know that I would call Uma plain-faced. But it was ludicrous that they kept going on about how her (Uma's) costumes were way too big for Kat. Maybe in terms of height (though I think Kat is relatively tall?) but she's not four sizes bigger than Kat. Not in this universe at least.
According to IMBD, Uma Thurman is 6 ft. tall and Katherine McPhee is 5 ft. 8 in.
