Broadway vets Norbert Leo Butz, Beth Leavel, Idina Menzel, Jeremy Jordan and Kristin Chenoweth, among others, are on board, too.

Episodes are broadcast at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET daily, mirroring times Broadway plays. “Stars” can be streamed at The Actors Fund website, Playbill, BroadwayWorld and YouTube.

During the pandemic, additional artists are streaming performances on social media to supply live entertainment, reports CBS News.
