A Broadway Fundraiser is Definitely the Event that Will Hand Hillary Clinton the Election

Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump in most polls of the presidential election. Even if she wasn’t, Hollywood and Broadway are a contingent that has long been in her column. But the star-studded fundraiser her campaign organized on Monday night at the St. James Theatre in New York wasn’t about convincing an undecided corner of the electorate, but rather about raising money – the most expensive tickets cost $100,000. And perhaps, too, about rubbing it in to The Donald, who likely hasn’t even seen Hamilton yet. (Clinton has seen it twice, ha.) Dubbed the “Stronger Together” concert for the Hillary Victory Fund, the likes of Billy Crystal, Barbra Streisand, Hugh Jackman, Sienna Miller, Sarah Jessica Parker, Neil Patrick Harris, Anne Hathaway, Julia Roberts, and more made appearances, giving speeches or performing classics like “Over the Rainbow,” “Tomorrow,” and “Battle Hymn of the Republic.” But even in a room full of celebrities, it was the Clintons – Bill and Chelsea – that stole the show.
