Millionaire's Broadway Giveaway Week
Starting on December 19, contestants on Millionaire will be asked one question about Broadway during their game. If they answer the question correctly, they will win tickets to see a performance of Mary Popping or The Lion King on Broadway for themselves and a section of the studio audience. The week will begin with Steffanie Leigh and Gavin Lee, the two lead actors in Mary Poppins, playing Millionaire for charity, The Actors Fund.
