Rosie O’Donnell’s coming to Broadway for one night only ‘ next Monday, November 23rd.

She’s raising money for her Broadway Kids and Maravel Arts Center at the famed Palace Theater on West 47th St. And she’s putting on a tribute to Queen Latifah, who’d better sing ‘ I think she will. She’s sensational.

Among the guests is Gavin Creel of “Hair,” Nikki Blonsky of the “Hairspray”movie, Melinda Doolitte, and Montego Glover, star of “Memphis.” Also, Rosie’s kids from the Maravel Center will put on their own number ‘ and I am telling you, these kids are all Broadway bound. It’s a remarkable group over there on the West Side. Plus I am told that there will be surprise guests. Very cool.

There are still a few tickets available. ‘Donating to Rosie’s charities is like a “best bet.” She runs a tight ship, and the results are always on view over at Maravel.
