The star-studded event featured A-List stars and a pro-Hillary rendition of Hamilton's "Ten Duel Commandments" by Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Broadway stars and Hollywood actors alike joined forces to raise money for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign on Monday night at the St. James Theater in New York.

The Stronger Together fundraiser was hosted by comedian Billy Crystal, who was sure to sling a few jokes in opponent Donald Trump's direction.

"No racist baiting, no Muslim hating, pantsuits for everyone, it's Hillary tonight," he sang in his opening number, according to E! News. "No border walls, no Russian pacts, everyone here has paid federal tax."

There were performances from Sarah Jessica Parker (who sang "Tomorrow" from Annie, which she starred in in 1979), Hugh Jackman (reprising "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin'" from Oklahoma) and Bernadette Peters (who sang "Children Will Listen" from Into the Woods, which she starred in in 1987). Anne Hathaway, Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Groban, and Sienna also wow-ed with musical performances.

The night raised over $2.3 million for Hillary's campaign, as it charged anywhere from $45 to $2,700 for tickets and $100,000 for premium packages.

Broadway icon Lin-Manuel Miranda also took the stage with former co-star Renee Elise Goldsberry to sing a rewritten pro-Hillary version of Hamilton's "Ten Duel Commandments."

Luckily, an NBC reporter was kind enough to share the lyrics on Twitter:

There's also a video, thanks to a Hollywood Reporter editor who was lucky enough to attend the show:

Celebs Julia Roberts, Lena Dunham, Uzo Aduba, Helen Mirren and Sarah Paulson also took the stage to voice their support for the Democratic presidential nominee. Former President Bill Clinton popped in as well to rally audiences to vote for Hillary on November 8.
