Kate Mulgrew reflects on Star Trek: Voyager’s 25th anniversary ahead of virtual reunion event
Star Trek: Voyager is celebrating its 25th anniversary and the cast will be reuniting online tonight to raise money for the Actors Fund, an organization dedicated to assisting performing arts and entertainment professionals.

“This reunion will be both gratifying and novel: we are all alive, we are all congenial, and we are all still actors!” said Captain Janeway herself, Kate Mulgrew.
The cast members of The CW’s The Flash got together for an evening of Stars in the House! with Seth Rudetsky and James Wesley. Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes, Danielle Nicolet, Hartley Sawyer, and Victor Garber got together in support of The Actors Fund.

Broadway SiriusXM Radio Host Seth Rudetsky and Friends Insist “The Show Must Go On” With Entertaining New Series “Stars in the House”
While many of us are baking bread, and cooking hearty stews, and soups, and filling our homes with the aroma of these home-made delicacies, two creative guys are producing new “comfort TV” programs.
In an attempt to help all of us who are craving live performances on Broadway and other fresh entertainment content, the creative team of Sirius XM radio host Seth Rudetsky and his Broadway producer-husband James Wesley created Stars in the House.
The new YouTube streaming show is keeping us highly entertained during this global health pandemic. Stars in the House, which launched shortly after Broadway theaters closed due to COVID-19, is a twice-daily dose of sheer delight, (2 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET), that brings fresh new entertainment content right to our computers, phones, and tablets.
Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason Warmly Remember Their Classic 1977 Romantic Comedy ‘The Goodbye Girl’
“How The Goodbye Girl came to be is such a convoluted story,” Marsha details at the Stars in the House: The Goodbye Girl Reunion Supporting the Actors Fund event. “Neil wrote a script that was not called The Goodbye Girl and we did a reading of it. It was called Bogart Slept Here and Richard and myself, [producer] Ray Stark and Neil sat down one day in an office and read the script. After it was over, Neil said, ‘Ah, I know what’s wrong. Give me three or four weeks and I can fix it.’ And Bogart Slept Here is where The Goodbye Girl ends. He realized nobody was really interested in a story about somebody being successful, so he took the characters back to when they were struggling.”
Andrew Barth Feldman and Samantha Williams Read Lauren Gunderson's I and You on Stars in the House Live Stream
Stars in the House, the daily live streamed concert series created by Playbill correspondent and SiriusXM Broadway host Seth Rudetsky and producer James Wesley, presents a reading of Lauren Gunderson's I and You, featuring Jimmy Award winner and former Dear Evan Hansen star Andrew Barth Feldman and Caroline, or Change's Samantha Williams, May 17 at 2 PM. Watch the live stream above.
The reading is the first in the new Plays in the House Jr. series, executive produced by Wesley and Rudetsky with artistic direction by Tony nominee Anika Larsen. The series of readings of plays for young people, performed by young people, will stream Sundays at 2 PM, hosted by Juli Rudetsky Wesley followed by a Q&A with the playwright.
“As a mother of two young boys, I’m so thrilled be able to help bring this series to fruition for young people across the country (and the world),” Larsen said. “I was feeling helpless during this challenging time, until I started doing Q&As with students via Zoom to help support educators trying to teach the arts remotely. Seth and James got wind of that, and thought I’d be the right person to use their incredible platform to bring theatre to young people, and to model ways of doing live-streamed theatre while schools and youth theatre groups are unable to have large gatherings safely. To raise money for extraordinary non-profits is the cherry on top!”
