[Blind Gossip] While there are reports that nobody wants to perform at Donald Trump’s Presidential Inauguration, that is not true.
In an interesting turn of events, we just found out that the producer of one theatrical show is currently negotiating for their entire cast to perform at the Inauguration!
There are a few details that still need to be worked out in the contract, but it looks like attendees would be treated to more than one musical number from the show.
Although the show’s producer was quite antagonistic towards Trump during the past year, it looks like that is not stopping them from putting the show first!
By the way, this is definitely NOT about the cast of Hamilton!
[Optional] Which song from a musical would you most like to hear Donald Trump sing?

It’s the cast of Hamilton!
It’s the cast of Broadway ShowStoppers!
Blind Gossip told you a month ago that a theatrical show’s cast was going to perform as part of the Inauguration festivities. Broadway ShowStoppers performed at The Chairman’s Inaugural Dinner last night.
Broadway ShowStoppers is a musical review from Las Vegas that performs the biggest hits from Broadway musicals. Dozens of singers and dancers and a 30-piece orchestra.
The show includes selections from shows like Chicago, A Chorus Line, and Caberet. All the Broadway songs are performed with a distinctly Vegas twist (see video below). Who could ever get tired of watching One from A Chorus Line being performed? No one!
Steve Wynn had a few clashes with Donald Trump during the primaries, but is now a full supporter of Trump and has been playing a key role in securing entertainment for the Inauguration.
The show was originally called Steve Wynn’s ShowStoppers, as he commissioned the show for his wife, who absolutely loves Broadway musicals. The show performed at Wynn Las Vegas from 2014 through the end of December 2016, but performers were asked to do one additional performance for the Presidential Inauguration celebration.
(Note: Their performance was completely voluntary. If an individual performer did not want to go, they did not have to go.)
We gave you the biggest hint right in the blind item: “…that is not stopping them from putting the show first.” Stop… Show… ShowStoppers.
Nobody got this one right, but kudos to everyone who provided witty responses! And to fulfill a request from Conchord, who wanted to hear Donald Trump sing Razzle Dazzle from Chicago, we give you the next best thing from ShowStoppers:
