When Broadway shut down, Seth and his native Texan husband James Wesley started hosting the livestream Stars In The House which raises money for The Entertainment Community Fund (formerly The Actors Fund). So far they’ve raised over $1.2 million dollars and recently celebrated their three year anniversary of the show. Before that, Seth spent many years on Broadway as a pianist and conductor as well as two years as a comedy writer on THE ROSIE O’DONNELL SHOW (three Emmy nominations with his co-writers). He is now the afternoon deejay on the SiriusXM Broadway channel as well the host of SETH SPEAKS. He’s performed his show, DECONSTRUCTING BROADWAY in London, Boston (Irne award) and L.A. (with Barbra Streisand in the audience!). He co-wrote and co-starred in DISASTER! (NY TIMES critics’ pick) on Broadway which was licensed by Music Theater International and is being performed around the country. He’s written the books SETH’S BROADWAY DIARY VOLUME 1 and 2 (Dress Circle publishing) and has also authored two young adult novels; “MY AWESOME/AWFUL POPULARITY PLAN” and “THE RISE AND FALL OF A THEATER GEEK” (Random House) and the just available MUSICAL THEATRE FOR DUMMIES. Seth and James co-produced the “What The World Needs Now Is Love” recording with Broadway Records (number one on iTunes) featuring amazing singers like Jessie Mueller, Carole King, Audra MacDonald, Lin-Manuel Miranda and so many more to help the victims and families of the Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooting. He and James also produce and host the yearly “Voices For The Voiceless” concert to benefit You Gotta Believe which helps older foster kids find families (stars have included Tina Fey and Megan Hilty) as well as producing/hosting 13 Concert For America benefits which help non-profits like National Immigration Law Center and NAACP (stars have included Barry Manilow and Chita Rivera). James and Seth run “Seth’s Big Fat Broadway Cruise” which brings Broadway stars and Broadway lovers together to fabulous destinations!

Sirius XM radio host Seth Rudetsky is bringing his Broadway concert series to Las Vegas! Rudetsky is teaming up with Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress, Carousel, and The Minutes) for a one-night-only special-event concert that will be filled with intimate, funny, behind-the-scenes stories mixed with incredible performances of the songs Mueller has performed on Broadway and beyond.
The set list will have Mueller recreating show-stopping performances from her unique Broadway career, like She Used to Be Mine from Waitress, If I Loved You from Carousel and, of course, the title song and multiple hits from Beautiful, The Carol King Musical , the show for which she won the Tony Award!
Seth’s Broadway Concerts are always one-of-a-kind because they’re never fully planned in advance. In a past concert, Rudetsky remarked that Mueller should have been in Les Miz, and as soon as he started playing the intro to Eponine’s classic song, Mueller launched into an unrehearsed and amazing performance of On My Own. Who knows what will happen at the performance you attend! This spontaneous evening of show-stopping stories and hit songs will also feature Mueller recreating her recent triumph when she put her own spin on Miss Adelaide at the Kennedy Center’s Guys And Dolls. If you love amazing musicians and sassy comedy, come see this one-night-only event!
