On June 23, the Tony-nominated musical Sister Act will welcome President Obama, whose 2012 re-election campaign has chosen the production as host for his first major Broadway fundraiser, according to The New York Times. Show producer Whoopi Goldberg, a supporter of the President, will host the evening’s events at the Broadway Theater. Tickets for the show will start at $250; $1,000 will get you an orchestra seat and entry to a pre-show reception with Goldberg, while $10,000 will get you a photo shoot with the President himself.
Throughout Obama’s presidency, he and the First Lady have proven themselves big Broadway supporters. In 2009, the Obamas attended the revival of Joe Turner’s Come and Gone and later took daughters Sasha and Malia to Memphis and The Addams Family. In 2010, the President welcomed stage stars like Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Karen Olivo and Nathan Lane to the White House to celebrate Broadway as part of his ongoing concert series honoring different genres of American music.
