O'Hara joins the previously announced Tony winners Kristin Chenoweth, Audra McDonald and Bebe Neuwirth.

Hosted and "re-constructed" by Seth Rudetsky, the evening will be held June 15 at New World Stages. Show time is 7:30 PM.

Additional "Dames" will be announced shortly.

The Nothing Like a Dame concert, according to press notes, "will feature a new format of songs and stories from the women of Broadway, as well as rare video clips from earlier days in each of their remarkable careers, accompanied by commentary from Rudetsky and the women themselves."

"Year after year, the Nothing Like a Dame concert has been an absolutely wonderful experience for all concerned," said Phyllis Newman in a statement. "I'm thrilled we've been able to be of such help to so many women in our industry while also providing such a magnificent evening of entertainment for so many people."
