you don't even have to love musicals to appreciate this show. We're big fans of Catherine since her humble Idol beginnings and have been waiting for her to do something big. Great show, great music, great story line. A Smash hit as far as we're concerned! Read more

Recaps
2x17: The Tonys recap: The whole cast sings ‘Pressure’ as they walk through the Theatre District. Julia wakes up Tom, informing him they have work to do. Only 12 hours are left until the Tonys and a lot is yet left to be done. Ivy and her mom are in Ivy’s apartment, trying on their dresses for that night. Her mother makes a comment about Ivy’s not fitting, when it did perfectly two weeks ago. She finds this rather odd, but Ivy doesn’t tell her the real reason why the dress isn’t fitting her properly... read more.

2x16: The Nominations recap: The episode begins and Ivy’s still pregnant and seemingly worried about it. Ana’s looking for jobs as Karen’s leaving the apartment for the show. The Outer Critics’ Circle nominations are announced – Bombshell received 10, but Hit List got 11. While Tom and Eileen are seeing one of the other nominated shows, Tom can’t resist looking at his phone. All of a sudden, Tom drops his phone and when he reaches down to try and find it, instead of finding his phone, he grabs the guy’s shoe behind him. The guy turns out to be a movie star who is also on the Tony voting committee that year. Eileen as a result tells Tom he better make things right... read more.

2x15: The Transfer recap: The episode begins with “Hit List” having moved to Broadway. Jimmy has become somewhat of a celebrity, with people on the street keen to get his autograph and take a picture with him. Karen and Ana are also really excited with the transition. During the previews, Ana has a few goof ups and Jimmy isn’t happy about it. Karen isn’t too worried though and says they will all be ready once it’s time for the real thing. Lindsay Mendez is rehearsing with Tom for her song that she’s singing at Houston and Levitt night. After Lindsay has left, Eileen tells Tom, how important it is that he and Julia present a united front at the Houston and Levitt night... read more.

2x14: The Phenomenon recap: The episode begins with Karen hanging out with Derek at her house and sharing a bottle of wine. It’s 4 in the morning, so Derek decides to leave, but Karen stops him, saying he doesn’t have to. The two begin kissing and making out. At Adam’s, Jimmy wakes up really early in the morning. He arrives at Karen’s apartment building and climbs up to her apartment via the fire escape. He knocks on her window and after she opens it, he apologizes to her for everything. While he is apologizing, he sees Derek in the background and immediately leaves without saying anything more. At Eileen’s office, Tom, Ivy and her mother arrive to talk about the Tony’s... read more.

2x13: The Producers recap: The episode begins with Ivy and other cast members of “Bombshell” teaching a bunch of kids how to do the mambo, in front of TV cameras. They are all exhausted from doing back to back shows, but have to do this for the publicity of the show. While watching them perform, Eileen informs Tom that Julia has decided to go ahead with “Gatsby” and Scott Nichols has already spoken to his board about it. At the “Hit List” rehearsal hall, Ana and Karen are sharing cold vibes between them because Ana is still seeing Adam. There is a photo shoot happening and everyone expect Jimmy has arrived. Derek and Nichols aren’t pleased to learn this... read more.
