D'Abruzzo and Davis are the celebrity guests for the May 10 episode of the game show, which is hosted by Donny Osmond. D'Abruzzo is joined by her Avenue Q co-star, Kate Monster, for the syndicated program, which airs in the metropolitan area on WWOR Channel 9 at 10 AM ET. Check local listings.

This episode was taped last fall for a Broadway week that featured such theatre stars as Rosie O'Donnell, Neil Patrick Harris, Jason Alexander, Bruce Vilanch, Mario Cantone and Deborah Gibson. Most of those episodes aired in November.

Stephanie D'Abruzzo is currently making her Broadway debut in Avenue Q at the Golden Theatre. She received a Drama Desk nomination for her work in the Off-Broadway mounting of Q. She has also been seen on stage in the City Center Encores! production of Carnival, the recent all-star Chess concert and the Encores! 10th Anniversary Bash. D'Abruzzo has spent several seasons on "Sesame Street" and the kids show "Oobi."

After Frenchie Davis made it to the finals of the second season of "American Idol," the singer was dropped from the show, but she quickly rebounded, making her Broadway debut in Rent. She recently portrayed Effie in a three-city tour of Dreamgirls and will again play that role in Pittsburgh in August. She is also expected to return to Rent this summer.
