It has been seven years since NBC's Broadway-centered series Smash took its final bow. But now, fans will get to hear some of the show's stunning soundtrack once again courtesy of a reunited cast.

On Tuesday (May 12), it was announced that a special livestream of the 2015 live concert of Bombshell (the musical at the show's center) will air on May 20 at People.com and the magazine's social platforms. Along with airing the 2015 performance, the stream will feature an introduction from Renee Zellweger, and an intermission hosted by Julie Klausner where the cast of the show will reunite and discuss the show's legacy.

The cast members from the show appearing during the event will include Christian Borle, Jaime Cepero, Will Chase, Brian d’Arcy James, Jack Davenport, Ann Harada, Megan Hilty, Jeremy Jordan, Katharine McPhee, Andy Mientus, Debra Messing, Leslie Odom Jr., Krysta Rodriguez and Wesley Taylor.

As with the original 2015 Bombshell concert, the livestream will be benefiting The Actors Fund, the national human services organization helping support actors through health care, affordable housing, financial assistance and more.

"We are thrilled to help raise more money for The Actors Fund and all their good work during this difficult time," Bob Greenblatt, one of the event's producers, said in a statement. "Smash and 'Bombshell In Concert' were thrilling experiences for us, and we are overjoyed that fans everywhere will get to finally see these amazing performances."

Bombshell in Concert will stream Wednesday, May 20 at 8 p.m. EST on People.com.
