Smash‘s Hit List is about to be staged in real life. (Take thatBombshell!)

For one night only, New York’s 54 Below is putting on the scrappy musical introduced in the now-cancelled NBC drama’s second (and final) season.

Series/Broadway stars Jeremy Jordan, Andy Mientus and Krysta Rodriguez will appear in two concert-performances on Dec. 9, The New York Times reports, with additional players to be announced at a later date. The score will include songs seen (often in pieces) during the show’s run, as well as additional numbers by composers Drew Gasparini, Joe Iconis, Benj Pasek, Andrew McMahon, Marc Shaiman, Lucie Silvas and Scott Wittman.

Smash fans will remember that Hit List, penned by Jordan and Mientus’ characters Jimmy and Kyle, lured Katharine McPhee’s Karen away from Bombshell and eventually won several Tonys.
