Stars in the House, the daily live streamed concert series created by Playbill correspondent and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and producer James Wesley, welcomes cast members from the forthcoming Broadway revival of Caroline, or Change, including Olivier winner Sharon D. Clarke, John Cariani, Tamika Lawrence, and Samantha Williams, April 17 at 2 PM. Watch the stream in the video above.
The Broadway revival of the Jeanine Tesori and Tony Kushner musical was originally set to begin previews at Studio 54 March 13 (Broadway houses went dark March 12). The production, directed by Michael Longhurst with choreography by Ann Yee, will return in the fall with dates to be announced.
New shows air daily at 2 PM ET and 8 PM ET, featuring performances by stars of stage and screen and conversations with Rudetsky between each tune. Rudetsky will encourage live viewers to donate, and Wesley will give updates from The Fund as well as shout-outs to people donating in real time. Dr. Jonathan LaPook, chief medical correspondent for CBS News, will also make frequent appearances to answer questions and offer best practices.
The April 17 at 8 PM stream will spotlight NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist with cast members Skylar Astin, Peter Gallagher, Lauren Graham, Jane Levy, Alex Newell, Mary Steenburgen, and John Clarence Stewart, creator-executive producer Austin Winsberg, and producer-choreographer Mandy Moore.
