Midler will appear on Tuesday, October 24; Baker will appear on the evening of Wednesday, October 25, and Vardalos will appear on Friday, October 27. In addition, MSNBC commentator Tucker Carlson will be Short's guest on Thursday, October 26.

Fame Become Me is directed by Scott Wittman, with music by Marc Shaiman, lyrics by Shaiman and Wittman, and a book by Short and playwright Daniel Goldfarb.
