Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley’s daily series benefits The Actors Fund.

Stars in the House, the daily live streamed concert series created by Playbill correspondent and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and producer James Wesley, celebrates the legacy of late entertainment icon Mary Wilson, the co-founder and co-star of The Supremes whose theatrical credits included Beehive and Grandma Sylvias Funeral, June 8 at 8 PM ET.

Ms. Wilson, who passed away February 8, performed with orchestras and symphonies around the world and was also the author of Dreamgirl: My Life as a Supreme, Supreme Faith: Someday We’ll be Together, and Supreme Glamour.

The stream, which will feature past interviews with the late Wilson, also celebrates Black Music Appreciation Month.

Stars in the House launched March 16 last year to promote support for The Actors Fund and its services in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. It has also raised funds for the NAACP’s Legal Defense Fund in support of the Black Lives Matter movement as well as Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

New shows—streaming Tuesday–Saturday at 8 PM ET—feature performances by stars of stage and screen, in conversation and song with Rudetsky and Wesley. Peter Flynn serves as streaming director.
