Stars in the House is showing no signs of slowing down. Rudetsky and Wesley will host several exciting reunions over the next week, with generous matching donations from dedicated fans and patrons.  The full schedule and event details are as follows:

  • FRIDAY, JUNE 11 – “THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA”

The stars are in the house and the light is in the piazza!  Original Broadway Cast members Kelli O’Hara (Clara), Matthew Morrison (Fabrizio), and Victoria Clark(Margaret) will take us back to 1950s Italy to reminisce about their time in this show, which quickly became a fan favorite.  The Angie Torres Charitable Fund will match all donations made for The Light in the Piazza up to $2,500.

  • SATURDAY, JUNE 12 – “DREAMGIRLS”

Seth and James will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Seth’s “Dreamgirls” benefit concert which raised over $1 Million for The Actors Fund in September 2001.  The starry line-up for this special episode includes Lillias White, Audra McDonald, Heather Headley, Darius DeHaas, Tamara Tunie, and Brenda Braxton.  This is “One Night Only” that will be “Hard to Say Goodbye” to!

  • WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16 – “GUYS & DOLLS”

“Stars In The House” is partnering with NH Collection New York Madison Avenue, an exciting newcomer onto the Big Apple’s hotel scene, for a very special reunion of the 1992 cast of Broadway’s Tony Award-winning “Guys and Dolls” including Nathan Lane (Nathan Detroit), Peter Gallagher (Sky), Faith Prince (Adelaide), Josie de Guzman (Sarah), Walter Bobbie (Nicely-Nicely Johnson), Ruth Williamson (General Cartwright), and director Jerry Zaks.  Seth and James will broadcast live from the hotel for what is sure to be a “high stakes” conversation, so don’t “rock the boat” and be sure to tune in.  The NH Collection Madison Avenue is also generously matching all donations made during this show, up to $10,000!

  • FRIDAY, JUNE 18 – “HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH”

Get your wigs OUT of their boxes because Neil Patrick Harris and Lena Hall are in the house!  These two rockstar performers will talk about transforming into their iconic “Hedwig” characters, donning those outrageous costumes, and some of their most memorable moments on stage and on tour.  The Paula Kaminsky Davis Charitable Foundation will generously match all donations made during this show, up to $7,500!

All episodes will live stream at 8pm ET on the Stars In The House YouTube channel, and StarsInTheHouse.com, and fans will be able to ask questions live, and donate to The Actors Fund.  As always, there is likely to be live music as well!
