- Smash! [show]
"According to Stephen Sondheim, "Musical comedies aren't written - they're re-written".
Smash is Jack Rosenthal's hilarious but scathing look at the journey to get a musical from page to stage, complete with a cantankerous composer, a fantasist lyricist, a neophyte female novelist turned playwright, a cocksure director and a bombastic producer.
Based on his own experience of turning his hit tv play Bar Mitzvah Boy into a (less-than-successful) musical, this is the London premiere of one of Rosenthal's wittiest and, until now, rarely seen, plays."
