When Gallagher met Hilty in 2012—just before departing on the Jekyll and Hyde tour—he had no idea that she was currently starring as the Marilyn Monroe-wannabe, Ivy, in Smash, or that she had played Dolly Parton’s character in the musical version of 9 to 5 and Glinda in Wicked.
If you weren’t working together then how on earth did you meet in the Broadway scene? What did you think when you came away from that conversation? BG: I was supposed to leave town two weeks later, so it worked out because there was no pressure really. Both of us had just gotten out of very long-term relationships, so it was very casual, and I think that’s actually why it ended up working out.
