Chances of stargazing at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next month are looking brighter — pop singers Janelle Monae and Cyndi Lauper, “Let It Go” crooner Idina Menzel, and actors Bryan Cranston and Tony Goldwyn are slated to appear at events surrounding the political confab.
This particular round of boldfaced guests comes courtesy of House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi: According to Pelosi’s schedule, Monae is headlining the California Dem’s traditional convention-opening concert on July 25; Menzel and Lauper are performing at her “Women’s Tea” (sounds so proper!), where Goldwyn will also appear, the following day. Cranston, who recently played LBJ in the HBO movie “All the Way,” is the featured guest at a July 28 luncheon she’s holding in honor of the party’s ticket.
Meanwhile, there’s little word on which celebrities will appear at the Republican convention, though presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has suggested he’s enlisting pro athletes to join him in Cleveland.
