The weekly live talkfest, which includes interviews and performances from Broadway stars, is held at 6 PM at the New York cabaret Don't Tell Mama. There is a $10 donation and a two-drink minimum. The donation goes directly to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the nation's leading industry-based, not-for-profit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organization. Ana Gasteyer, whose memorable turns as Martha Stewart and Celine Dion made her an “SNL” favorite for six years, will star in this summer’s Pittsburgh CLO revival of Funny Girl.

Her other theatrical credits include the Broadway revival of The Rocky Horror Show, Off-Broadway’s Kimberly Akimbo and The Vagina Monologues and the national tour of The Real Live Brady Bunch.
