It’s been many years since viewers have been able to tune in to watch The Rosie O’Donnell Show. But that time is now over…at least for one night.
According to Deadline, The Rosie O’Donnell Show is set to return for a one night special this Sunday (March 22.) Alongside longtime actor and producer Erich Bergen, O’Donnell will be featured on the show that will be streamed on Broadway.com and also on Broadway.com’s YouTube channel. The show will also serve as a fundraiser for The Actors Fund.
In light of many actors and actresses out of work due to the virtual shutdown of the entire country due to the coronavirus spread, The Actors Fund works tirelessly to raise money for a number of organizations such as the Artists Health Insurance Resource Center, The Career Center, Housing Resources, Addiction & Recovery, HIV/AIDS and Senior Services, Counseling and Emergency Financial Assistance, as well as The Friedman Health Center for the Performing Arts in New York City.
And as you might imagine, the show will be filled to the brim with stars, all of them reporting in from their quaratines at home in light of the coronavirus crisis. Matthew Broderick, Kristin Chenoweth, Darren Criss, Gloria Estefan, Billy Porter and Morgan Freeman are just some of the stars scheduled to appear.
As fans may recall, The Rosie O’Donnell Show aired on broadcast television from June 1996 to May 2002. In recent years, O’Donnell has spent a majority of her time spending time with her family and taking on various acting roles.
