Television personality Rosie O’Donnell will lead a protest outside the White House Monday alongside numerous Broadway stars.
A spokeswoman for O’Donnell confirmed the plans this week, revealing that the former “The View” co-host would sing popular show tunes in opposition to President Donald Trump’s administration.
The Associates Press reported that protest songs will include Burt Bacharach’s “What the World Needs Now Is Love,” “A Brand New Day” from “The Wiz” and “Climb Ev’ry Mountain” from “The Sound of Music.”
Cast members from such plays as “Hamilton,” “The King and I,” “Les Miserables,” “Phantom of the Opera” and “Wicked” are expected to attend.
The event is being organized by Broadway veteran Seth Rudetsky and husband James Wesley and will reportedly be livestreamed on the Facebook page of the Soros-funded “MoveOn” group.

O’Donnell similarly led a protest outside the White House in February of last year as Trump prepared to address Congress for the first time.
The comedian has long been a vocal critic of Trump, accusing the president of “treason” on numerous occasions.
Trump has likewise taken shots at O’Donnell, calling the actress a “slob” who “talks like a truck driver.”
During a debate in Cleveland against other Republicans in 2016, Trump famously defended against accusations of speaking ill towards women by joking he only spoke negatively about O’Donnell.
