Now that the vacation in Maine is out of the way, it’s time for the president to get back to the business-at-hand: More celebrity-filled entertainment parties:

Tony Award winners Nathan Lane, Audra McDonald, Tonya Pinkins and Marvin Hamlisch are part of “A Broadway Celebration: In Performance at the White House” July 19 in Washington, DC.

The Broadway-themed evening is presented as part of the White House’s “In Performance” concert series. President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama host the 7 PM concert that will be filmed for an Oct. 20 broadcast on PBS.

The President is scheduled to introduce the evening that boasts performances by Lane (Guys & Dolls, The Addams Family), McDonald (Ragtime, Master Class), Pinkins (Caroline, or Change, Jelly’s Last Jam) and songwriter Hamlisch (A Chorus Line, Sweet Smell of Success) as well as Idina Menzel (Wicked), Brian d’Arcy James (Next to Normal), Chad Kimball (Memphis) and Karen Olivo (West Side Story). Also performing is young actress Assata Alston and the Joy of Motion Dance Center ensemble.

Who will be the first celebutard to make a “Bush is stupid” joke? Place your bets!

    I only follow the music of Broadway, not the actors. However, I'm willing to bet that the first person to perform will be the first celebrity to make the "Bush is stupid" joke.

    And so nice to see that our beloved president is sacrificing so much.

    BHO might reign from the first tee,but with “healthcare” and “financial reform”,he is shoulder-to-shoulder with America’s most costly initials…LBJ and FDR.

    Other than Nathan Lane and Marvin Hamlisch, I've never even HEARD of any of those folks. Guess I'm not up on all that 'elitist' stuff, eh?
