Comedienne Ellen Degeneres stunned New York theatregoers on Tuesday night (07Sep10) when she made her Broadway debut with a surprise cameo in hit musical Promises, PROMISES.
The funnywoman, 52, hit the stage as a nurse in the first act of the play, which stars Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth.
But DeGeneres' brief appearance was only a one-off - the stint was filmed for the new season of her U.S. talk show The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which returns to the air next week (begs13Sep10).
