Rosie O’Donnell is helping others amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The 57-year-old actress will once again host “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” for a one-night-only episode to rain funds for The Actors Fund, Fox News can confirm.
The program will stream live on YouTube and Broadway.com on Sunday, March 22, at 7 p.m. ET, following the closures of all Broadway theaters until mid-April.
“Everybody who knows me knows that Broadway has been one of the brightest lights in my life since the time I was a little girl,” said O’Donnell in a statement. “It has also been the lifeblood of New York City for generation after generation. After all, Broadway has given to the world, now — in this time of tremendous need — it’s our turn to give something back.”

She continued: “There is no better way to support this community than via The Actors Fund. And, with a lineup like this, I dare you not to tune in.”
Rosie O’Donnell hosted a day-time talk show from 1996-2002 and featured high-profile guests.
The Actors Fund provides services and support to people in the entertainment business, including housing services, addiction recovery and more.
O’Donnell, who hosted a day-time talk show for six years, has always been a lover of Broadway, often promoting performances on her show. She has appeared on Broadway a number of times and earned a Tony Award for her dedication to arts education.
