Stars in the House—the live streamed concert series created by Playbill correspondent and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and producer James Wesley—celebrates late Broadway actor Doreen Montalvo, who passed away in October 2020. Watch the stream above from 8 PM ET February 14.
Jenn Gambatese, who shared the stage with Montalvo in Mrs. Doubtfire, and R.Evolución Latina produce the evening of remembrance, alongside Rudetsky and Wesley, to raise funds for R.Evolución Latina’s Doreen Montalvo “Do It Anyway” scholarship for artists over 30 years old. Guests include Gambatese, Lin-Manuel Miranda (Hamilton), Andréa Burns (In the Heights, On Your Feet!), David Baida (On Your Feet!), Mrs. Doubtfire's Alena Watters, Analise Scarpaci, Jake Ryan Flynn, Avery Sell, Jay Harrison Ghee, Calvin Cooper, and Brad Oscar, as well as scholarship finalists Amanda Martinez and Danielle Diniz.
The broadcast also features the announcement of the 2022 scholarship recipient, chosen by former castmates of Montalvo: Marcos Santana, Rosie Lani Fiedelman, Baida, Liz Ramos, and R.Evolucion Latina Founder Luis Salgado.
Montalvo appeared on Broadway in On Your Feet!, In the Heights, and Mrs. Doubtfire.
Stars in the House launched March 16, 2020, and has raised more than $1 million to support The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.
New shows—streaming Monday evenings at 8 PM ET—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director.
