Ever since Trump's disastrous Helsinki press conference, a group has gathered nightly outside the White House to stage protests in an area they now call the Kremlin Annex. On some nights there are speeches, some nights there may be some songs, or some nights other kinds of entertainment. Today at 7 PM Washington, D.C. time -- and 4 PM on the West Coast -- Rosie O'Donnell (who has battled with Trump for years) has put together a group of Broadway performers to sing en masse. It will be live-streamed on the MoveOn.org Facebook page, which you can get to here.

The protesting performers are reported to include current and former Broadway cast members from such shows as Wicked, Beautiful, Hamilton, Phantom of the Opera, The King and I, Les Miserables, Cinderella, Xanadu, The Producers and Head Over Heels, as well as others.
A song list of some of the numbers they'll be performing as been published, but the one that most stands out to me is that they've asked people attending to bring along the song lyrics to "Do You Hear the People Sing?" from Les Miserables and join the cast.
As a warm-up, here's the number from the 25th anniversary concert -- with the lyrics, just in case...well, you want to later sing along...
