A one-night only Broadway concert presentation of BOMBSHELL – the Marilyn Monroe musical from the TV series 

Created by Theresa Rebeck

To benefit The Actors Fund.

We are raising money to put on the show of your dreams:  A once-in-a-lifetime concert presentation of BOMBSHELL to benefit The Actors Fund. 

The cast is donating their time, as is the whole creative team.*  But we do need to raise $50,000 to cover the costs of the production and to assure that 100% of the proceeds will go to The Actors Fund to help people in the creative community who are in need, crisis or transition.

If you love this show - and you know you do - please consider a contribution large or small to help bring this evening to life. We have a great list of rewards at different tax-deductible donation levels to say THANK YOU for your support.

On Monday, June 8, 2015, at the Minskoff Theater, in New York City, we will present: CHRISTIAN BORLE, WILL CHASE, MEGAN HILTY, KATHARINE MCPHEE and DEBRA MESSING in BOMBSHELL.

Music by MARC SHAIMAN

Lyrics by MARC SHAIMAN and SCOTT WITTMAN

This event is Produced in Association with CRAIG ZADAN and NEIL MERON

BOMBSHELL will be co-directed by SCOTT WITTMAN and JOSH BERGASSE

with Musical Numbers Choreographed by JOSH BERGASSE

BOMBSHELL is the Marilyn Monroe musical created in NBC’s Golden Globe-nominated television series hit SMASH created by Theresa Rebeck.  The original songs were written by the Tony and Grammy award-winning duo, Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman (HAIRSPRAY). This one-night-only event will feature the talents of Christian Borle, Will Chase, Megan Hilty, Katharine McPhee and Debra Messing.*  Completing the cast will be a starry collection of Broadway favorites. BOMBSHELL features the Emmy nominated songs “Let Me Be Your Star” and “Hang the Moon.” This is a night not be missed.

And with your tax deductible donation, you will put yourself in the select group to be first to hear how to get tickets!
