“We’re so thrilled that Annette Bening approached us about having Americans for the Arts and its Arts Action Fund on Stars in the House for National Voter Registration Day,” Wesley says. “It brings together two of our favorite things: the arts and a fair democracy!”

“And,” adds Rudetsky, “we’re going to make sure tons of vital voting information will be given throughout the show while still keeping the entertainment level at 100 percent.”

Stars in the House launched March 16 to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP's Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.

New shows—typically streaming Monday–Saturday at 8 PM ET with afternoon shows Saturday and Sunday at 2 PM—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director. Click here to watch previous episodes.
