A slew of Broadway and Hollywood names have teamed up for a one-night only Broadway performance benefiting the Hillary Victory Fund, with Julia Roberts, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Hugh Jackman among the starry lineup set to appear in support of Hillary Clinton.

The show, “Stronger Together,” features Chelsea Clinton as a special guest and Billy Crystal as host, appearing alongside familiar faces including Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Emily Blunt, Anne Hathaway, Josh Groban, Angela Bassett, Neil Patrick Harris, Helen Mirren, Sienna Miller, Bernadette Peters, Cynthia Erivo, Renee Elise Goldsberry, Rebecca Naomi Jones, Sarah Jones, Andrea McArdle and Ayodele Casel. Organizers of the evening promise new duets and collaborations.

Michael Mayer, the “Spring Awakening” and “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” director whose Off Broadway production of “Love, Love, Love” is now running, will direct the production, with Diane Paulus (“Waitress,” “Finding Neverland”) on board as special consultant. John Guare (“Six Degrees of Separation”) serves as script consultant, with Seth Rudetsky (“Disaster!”) as musical director.

A team of familiar Broadway names produces: Jujamcyn Theater president Jordan Roth, his partner Richie Jackson, “Wicked” composer Stephen Schwartz and “Finding Neverland” producer Harvey Weinstein.

The event is set for Oct. 17 at the St. James Theater, the Jujamcyn-owned venue currently occupied by “Something Rotten!,” which is dark on Monday nights. Tickets are on sale on the Hillary Clinton website.
