NEW YORK (AP) — President Barack Obama heads to Broadway next month as part of a double bill with former President Bill Clinton — and the stars will be out to welcome them.

James Earl Jones, Angela Lansbury, Patti LuPone, Audra McDonald, Mandy Patinkin, Nina Arianda, Kerry Butler, Norbert Leo Butz, Bobby Cannavale, Stockard Channing, Megan Hilty and Cheyenne Jackson are some of the performers slated to attend the June 4 fundraiser.

“Barack on Broadway” is one of two events that day that will join Obama and Clinton. The two presidents will also attend a dinner featuring a performance by Jon Bon Jovi.

The fund-raiser will be at the New Amsterdam Theatre, the home of “Mary Poppins” and will be directed by George C. Wolfe.

General admission is $250, with VIP tickets for $1,000.
