This morning, it was announced that Hit List, one of the fictional musicals from NBC’s dearly departed drama Smash, will be performed at 54 Below in New York City. Smash stars (and Hit List composers/performers) Jeremy Jordan, Andy Mientus, and Krysta Rodriguez, will star in the show, which will be presented by Julia Brownell, ex-Smash showrunner Joshua Safran, and Jennifer Ashley Tepper.
