NEW YORK (AP) — Stars of Hollywood and Broadway — including Julia Roberts, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, Emily Blunt, Neil Patrick Harris and Helen Mirren — have gathered for a splashy fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

The Democratic candidate could only address the group via video, but daughter Chelsea and husband, Bill, were present at the sold-out Monday event at the 1,300 seat St. James Theatre. Billy Crystal was host and Barbra Streisand lent her recorded voice to the show.

Joel Grey and Sienna Miller sang "Wilkommen" from "Cabaret," Parker and Andrea McArdle belted out "Tomorrow" from "Annie," and Anne Hathaway and Kelli O'Hara sang a tuneful medley of "Get Happy" and "Happy Days Are Here Again."

Tickets ranged from $45 in the rear balcony to $2,700 premium orchestra seats.
