‘Smash’, Episode 4: ‘The Cost of Art’

Cinema Blend singles out Megan Hilty’s big Marilyn number for praise this week:

“This week’s big musical number, ‘I Never Met a Wolf Who Didn’t Love to Howl’, is a standard Marilyn sexpot song…with a twist. I think what I like most about how the musical within¬†Smash¬†is shaping up is that yes, the creative team is remembering that the story of Marilyn is both sexy and heartbreaking…but Marilyn Monroe was also FUNNY. The willingness to flirt with humor and fun in some of these songs really makes me look forward to seeing how the show-within-a-show pans out. It’s a quality move.”
