The fundraiser will feature a Q&A moderated by Hamilton director Thomas Kail and a special performance by the cast. Viewers can gain access to the live stream by donating any amount. Proceeds will go to the Biden Victory Fund.

In September, cast members from various stage productions of Hamilton came together to rework lyrics from the musical for a medley of songs encouraging voter registration and early voting.

The Hamilton cast previously performed in 2016 for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

On Monday, Biden's wife, Jill Biden, joined the Will & Grace cast for another fundraiser. On Tuesday, Biden's campaign will hold a fundraiser featuring George Takei, Patrick Stewart, Kate Mulgrew and other cast members from Star Trek series.
