The roster is a who’s who taking place at Town Hall at 3 p.m. on Jan. 20, just three hours after Trump is sworn in.  Tony Award winners Chita Rivera, Kelli O’Hara, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Betty Buckley, Jessie Mueller and Billy Porter are all taking part. The lineup also features Sharon Gless, Andrea Martin, Bebe Neuwirth, Rosie O’Donnell, Rosie Perez, Lillias White, Judy Gold, Caroline Rhea, Stephanie Mills, and Charles Busch, among others.

Proceeds from the concert will benefit Planned Parenthood, NAACP, Sierra Club Foundation, Southern Poverty Law Center, and National Immigration Law Center.

THE WOMEN’S MARCH SONG

Words and Music
By Ann Hampton Callaway
We stand, we rise, we march together
For justice and equality
Oh yes, we stand, we rise, we march together
To protect our democracy

We demand clean water, we demand clean air
Better education and better healthcare

Ev’rybody, we stand, we rise, we march together
To defend a woman’s right to choose
Oh yes, we stand, we rise, we march together
Time to put yourself inside our shoes

With each step we’re marching to the beat of one drum:
To leave a better world for generations to come

Ev’rybody, we stand, we rise, we march together
To end violence, hate and bigotry
And we’ll keep standing and rising and marching together
Till we the people are safe,
Till we the people are free,
Till we the people are treated with respect
And with dignity!

We stand, we rise, we march together
Yes we stand, we rise, we march together
Oh, we stand, we rise, we march together
To protect our democracy!
