"Hit List," one of the musicals that took shape during Season 2 of "Smash," is becoming a real show. "Smash" stars Jeremy Jordan, Krysta Rodriguez and Andy Mientus are attached to star in a "Hit List" concert at 54 Below in New York.

According to 54 Below, the "Hit List" concert will feature a score written by Drew Gasparini, Joe Iconis, Andrew McMahon, Benj Pasek & Justin Paul, Marc Shaiman & Scott Wittman, and Lucie Silvas. Look for the special shows to include additional songs from the composers that were intended for the show but never made it to air. Special appearances by several of the composers and additional performers are expected to be announced. Katharine McPhee, there's still time!

For those not familiar with the fictional "Smash" musical, "Hit List" is described as "a modern fable about identity and the price of fame, tells the tragic love story of a wannabe pop singer who transforms herself to become a star and the hidden songwriter she uses to get there –- but at what cost?"

"Smash" showrunner Joshua Safran is involved with the 54 Below debut of "Hit List." The concerts will feature a full band.
