Broadway for Hillary: Watched live for free!


Lin-Manuel Miranda and Renee Elise Goldsberry sang a song from Hamilton, “The World Was Wide Enough” at Monday night’s Broadway for Hillary fundraiser at Broadway’s St. James Theater, rewritten especially for the occasion.

Joel Grey sang “Cabaret,” Josh Groban “Over the Rainbow,” Andrea McArdle sang “Tomorrow” in duet with Sarah Jessica Parker, who also sang “Been A Long Day” with her  husband Matthew Broderick and Victoria Clark.Angela Bassett recited Sojourner Truth’s “Ain’t I a woman?” speech

“Our goal tonight is simple: We have to raise more money than Donald Trump lost in 1995,” MC Billy Crystal said at the evening’s outset. The 1,700 who attended bought more than $2.3 million in tickets for Hillary Clinton’s campaign for president, while many more watched for free, via live stream, as Julia Roberts,  Jake Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman, Emily Blunt, Neil Patrick Harris, Helen Mirren et al declared themselves …with her.
