NEW YORK — One of the musicals at the heart of the cancelled TV show "Smash" will get another life.
The nightclub 54 Below said Tuesday it will present two world-premiere concert performances of "Hit List" on Dec. 9 featuring some of the stars from the series, including Jeremy Jordan, Andy Mientus and Krysta Rodriguez.
Later Tuesday, the 150-seat nightclub said both shows had sold out in an hour. Tickets were $55 plus a $25 food and beverage minimum.
On the second season of "Smash," the musical "Hit List" was a gritty, low-tech off-Broadway show that became a theater community darling and later competed with the glitzy Broadway-bound musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe called "Bombshell."
"Hit List" songs were written by Drew Gasparini, Joe Iconis, Andrew McMahon, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman and Lucie Silvas.
"Smash" was cancelled this summer after two seasons.
