Rosie O’Donnell is mixing her talk show bona fides with her love of Broadway for a one-night return of “The Rosie O’Donnell Show.”
O’Donnell will steer a live streaming benefit for The Actors Fund at 7 p.m. March 22 on Broadway.com and YouTube.
The lineup includes some of the biggest names in theater, including Patti LuPone, Kristin Chenoweth, Norbert Leo Butz, Gavin Creel, Erich Bergen, Harvey Firestein, Megan Hilty, Idina Menzel and Brian Stokes Mitchell.
Even O’Donnell’s music director from the six year of her daytime talk show, John McDaniel, will return for the event.
All of the performers will participate live from their own homes.
The Actors Fund benefits those in the performing arts and entertainment community, including financial assistance, housing resources and senior services. All Broadway shows will be closed through April 12.
