Rosie O'Donnell stated: “Everybody who knows me knows that Broadway has been one of the brightest lights in my life since the time I was a little girl. It has also been the lifeblood of New York City for generation after generation. After all Broadway has given to the world, now – in this time of tremendous need – it’s our turn to give something back. There is no better way to support this community than via The Actors Fund. And, with a line-up like this, I dare you not to tune in.”
2019 marks the 40th anniversary for Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat which was Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's first musical. A Broadway revival is in the works and has been said to be coming in 2021.
