"We know it is an understatement to say there’s been an uptick in anxiety over the past few weeks, and we have no doubt November 3 will be a day with a lot of it! That is why we are going to do a 10-hour Vote-a-Thon edition of Stars in the House on Election Day! We want to provide a place where people can watch something that’s election-related but purely entertaining instead of stressful,” said Rudetsky and Wesley in an earlier statement. “We thought it would be fun to hear from celebrities and viewers alike about their voting experiences throughout the years as well as what’s happening in real time at the polling sites around the country. And, of course, we will have live music, too!"
Stars in the House launched March 16 to promote support for 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.
New shows—typically streaming Monday–Saturday at 8 PM ET with afternoon shows Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director. Click here to watch previous episodes.
