Rosie O’Donnell, Broadway stars, protest outside White House
WASHINGTON — Rosie O’Donnell and cast members from some of Broadway’s biggest musicals have led a sing-along protest against President Donald Trump outside the White House.
O’Donnell spoke to protesters, some clutching signs with the word “Treason” spelled out, before the group broke into a rendition of “America the Beautiful” on Monday night.
The actress told the crowd it was important to make sure their voices were heard so that Trump would know that they were not going away.
The group also sang a rousing version of “A Brand New Day” from “The Wiz.”
The trip was organized by Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley, the host and producer of Sirius XM’s “On Broadway.”
The performers included current and former Broadway cast members from “Wicked,” ”Hamilton,” ”Phantom of the Opera” and other shows. MKH
