'Smash' stars Katharine McPhee, Megan Hilty sing Lorde's 'Royals' and leave us wanting more
Although their show has been off the air since this past May, costars Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty will have a mini-"Smash" reunion on a comedy web show, with hints at their performances being musical.
In the announcement for "It Could Be Worse," McPhee and Hilty are shown in an Instagram video sight-reading the lyrics to Lorde's "Royals." Watch the ten-second clip of the two starlets below. Warning: prepare to beg for more.
It's not yet known when in Season 2 of "It Could Be Worse" McPhee and Hilty will make their appearance, or what roles they'll take. "It Could Be Worse" stars "Smash" alum Wesley Taylor (Bobby, Seasons 1 and 2) as Jacob, a Broadway wannabe looking to make it big in a New York minute. Although he was cast in his first big Broadway show, he's often stuck at home tending to a needy long-term boyfriend, or is held back by his overbearing parents.
Other "Smash" stars that have made appearances on "It Could Be Worse" include Andy Mientus, Jeremy Jordan, Kysta Rodriguez, Debra Messing, and Will Chase.
Comparisons to "Smash" were made by The Washington Post in an article about one of the web show's stars: "'It Could Be Worse' is what 'Smash,' the disappointing backstage-on-Broadway series, might have been, had it found a looser and sharper-witted footing."
To catch up on "It Could Be Worse" Season 1, and to learn more about the all-star Broadway cast and production crew, check out the web series' official website. "Smash" aired its series finale in the Spring of 2013. Since then, "Smash" lived on most actively this past December through live concert performances of the in-show production "Hit List" by "Smash" stars Krysta Rodriguez, Andy Mientus, and Jeremy Jordan.
Will you tune in to 'It Could Be Worse' season 2 to see the main 'Smash' stars reunite?
