Eco-conscious Smash (Eco news)

Eco-conscious 'Smash'
Mother Nature Network reported

On the set of NBC's new musical drama "Smash," "We're doing a lot" to be green. "All the paper products are biodegradable. NBC is very concerned about that," says writer/executive producer Theresa Rebeck. "We always recycle on the set," adds Anjelica Huston. Debra Messing reads her scripts and rewrites electronically, using an app called Rehearsal 2. "It's saving so much paper," she notes. Megan Hilty does the same, and also drives a Ford Escape hybrid, and lives in an eco-friendly building in New York, where the show originates. "It has solar panels on the roof, and they recycle all the energy in the building. It lowered my energy bills," she says.

Debuting Feb. 6, the buzzy (with good reason) backstage drama about the making of a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe has a riveting who'll-get-the-part? plot, great musical numbers, and lots of name talent on camera and behind the scenes. The show is the brainchild of Steven Spielberg, who assembled a team including musical theater vets Neil Meron and Craig Zadan and composer-lyricists Marc Shaiman and Scott Whitman. Besides Huston, Messing, and Hilty, the cast includes Brian D'Arcy James, Jack Davenport and "American Idol" alumna Katharine McPhee as Hilty's rival for the musical's lead role.
