Act Break makes it a point never to steal a scoop, so we can't give you all the specifics, but rumor has it Michael Riedel's column in tomorrow's New York Post is a real hit piece on "Bombshell."
Riedel, who first praised the Broadway-bound show almost a year ago when some demo tracks were leaked online, has subsequently been a thorn in the production's side. (Although Act Break likes to think the show is more scared of a tell-all on OUR site.)
But Riedel apparently scored an invite to a party for "Bombshell's" New York "coming out," and when the evening imploded, he was a witness to all the wild goings-on.
What did he see? According to our friends at the Post, other than a memorable duet between megawatt Broadway star Veronica Moore and up-and-comer Karen Cartwright, all the talk revolved around a celebrity sex scandal, a marriage on the rocks, money woes and infighting about the show's mixed out-of-town reviews.
Let's hope the piece is as juicy as we've been led to believe: Downstage Dish needs more "Bombshell" drama to drive web traffic now that "Spider-Man" is running smoothly!
