Barack Obama will be joined by Bill Clinton for a fund-raiser at the New Amsterdam Theater on June 4.

The event is titled "Barack on Broadway," which is recycled from an event Obama did at the same theater in September of 2007.

It's a relatively low-dollar affair by fund-raiser standards, with maximum tickets going for $1,000 and discount $100 tickets for "Gen44 Young Professionals." (The theater seats right around 1,800 people.)

Obama has reportedly profited from his endorsement of same-sex marriage yesterday, with one local bundler telling me it will be "immeasurably easier" raising money now.

The president is currently on a West Coast fund-raising swing that includes a $14 million dollar trip to George Clooney's home in southern California, and he'll be in New York on May 14 for a well-timed fund-raiser co-hosted by Ricky Martin and a number of LGBT advocates.

Clinton has become a larger presence in Obama's campaign of late, appearing with Obama recently for a number of joint fund-raisers.
