WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama is hosting more than 40 high school students for White House workshops on acting, directing, singing and costume design.
Among the entertainment figures working with the students are actress Whoopi Goldberg, producer Harvey Weinstein, actress Cicely Tyson, singer Gloria Estefan and theater star Matthew Morrison, best known from “Glee.”
The lessons were ahead of “Broadway at the White House,” an afternoon performance being taped in the East Room, which will air on the TLC network Thanksgiving Day.
Mrs. Obama also offered condolences to the victims and families of the Paris attacks, and urged the nation to keep France in their thoughts and hearts.
