Updated

Ellen DeGeneres is not a nurse, but she played one – briefly – Tuesday night on Broadway.

The talk-show host, 52, delighted the audience at New York’s Broadway Theater with a surprise cameo as a nurse in the musical revival of Promises, Promises, starring Sean Hayes and Kristin Chenoweth.

Her scene comes in Act I, right before the Hayes character meets Chenoweth’s. DeGeneres will air the footage from the Broadway show on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Wednesday, following the series’ season-eight premiere on Monday.
