Met’s ‘Smash’ bash

Show preems at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

“I’m Bob Greenblatt. Welcome to the seminar on Egyptian hieroglyphics.” And with that greeting, the NBC Entertainment chairman began Thursday’s “Smash” preem at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Greenblatt then proceeded to intro producer-scribes Scott Wittman and Marc Shaiman, who teased thesp Christian Borle. “We got more than you!” Shaiman said of their respective applause.

“The night is young,” Borle returned.

“This is turning into a free-for-all,” Greenblatt said.

The audience included Broadway regulars like Bernadette Peters and Nathan Lane who seemed to forget it was a taped show and clapped and hooted after every number at the Cinema Society event. Then it was on to the grand Temple of Dendur, where Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty introduced each to family and friends.

“It’s happening. It’s out there. It’s real,” Hilty said.

Meanwhile, Matthew Broderick appeared annoyed with a small flock of women taking photos of his wife, Sarah Jessica Parker, who was deep in conversation with another partygoer.
