McPhee’s co-star, Emmy winner Debra Messing, also looked “smashing” this week. The “Will & Grace” alum — who plays musical writer Julia Houston on the new NBC series — turned heads in a purple satin dress, contrasting turquoise earrings, faux fur, and playful Jerome C. Rousseau sandals while out and about in the Big Apple. (2/6/2012)

"Smash" star Katharine McPhee stole the spotlight at the inaugural NFL Honors soiree in Indianapolis on Saturday. The 27-year-old singer — whose new NBC show got off to a strong start on Monday night — was simply stunning in a white cap-sleeved Valentino frock. Stacked bracelets, a diamond cocktail ring, and nude Christian Louboutin pumps completed her elegant ensemble. (2/4/2012)

“My very first Broadway experience was watching the famous videotape recording of ‘Into the Woods’ with the original cast. I instantly fell in love with the stories and the music – and that’s when I became a huge fan of Bernadette Peters. Her performance was thrilling and ultimately inspired me to seriously consider a career in the performing arts. Who knew that years later I would be lucky enough to play her daughter in a TV show about musical theater?! It’s the ultimate definition of a dream coming true!”

“The first Broadway show I saw was ‘Annie’ and it was life-changing. I nearly levitated out of my seat I was so amazed. All I could say to my parents afterwards was ‘I WANT TO DO THAT!’”

“My first Broadway experience was technically speaking off-Broadway, but extremely memorable nonetheless. Twenty years ago, I found myself in the audience for one of the very first performances of The Blue Man Group. I remember wishing that more theater could be like this, as the grand final e came to an end, and we found ourselves unspooling hundreds of toilet rolls over our heads while those funny little blue guys kept whacking their drums full of paint. I wish I could say I’d been to a profound production of ‘The Iceman Cometh,’ but it was blue men and drumming for me.”

“When I was around 12 years old, I think the closest thing to Broadway I’d ever experienced was a Christmas play at church. There was a PBS ‘Great Performances’ showing of ‘Into the Woods’ that I happened to catch on TV. Everything about it made me happy – especially the music. But Bernadette Peters and Joanna Gleason absolutely blew me away with their performances. From then on, it was Broadway or bust.”

“My earliest trip to a West End theater was to see ‘The Sound of Music’ at The Apollo Victoria in London. I can’t remember much about the show (my intermission ice cream aside!) – but I do remember wishing I was up there doing what those children were doing. And although it took me a few years, I was pretty delighted to find myself back there, up on the stage this time, for my own opening night of’ ‘Bombay Dreams.’”

"The first time I came to Broadway was in 1969, as an understudy for Ophelia, in Tony Richardson’s production of Hamlet at the Lunt-Fontanne. I had understudied Marianne Faithfull at the Roundhouse in London, and gone onstage quite a few times. But Francesca Annis replaced Marianne when the production traveled to New York City, and Francesca was not an understudy’s dream…much to my disappointment, she never missed a performance!"
