The Broadway company of Wicked is doing it's part in the fight for equality for gays and lesbians next week during a special one-night only performance benefiting the Empire State Pride Agenda, Equality California, Garden State Equality and Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force, four non-profit charitable organizations working to legislate equality and protect civil rights for the gay and lesbian community.
Produced by company members of Wicked, the event will feature current cast members as well as Wicked alumni Marty Thomas, Brandi Chavonne Massey, Ben Cameron and Kathy Deitch. Openly gay pop singer Ari Gold will also be on hand to lend his voice to this cause.
The Wicked cast members and musicians from the New York Company are joined by their friends from the Broadway community who also recognize that in these divisive times we must come together to support one another's rights throughout the country and around the world.
The performance will take place on January 12th inside of the lobby of the Gershwin Theater, home to the hit musical at 7 PM.
If you haven't seen the incredible cast of Wicked then you're definitely missing out. Brandi Chavonne Massey (who happens to be an old roommate) has one of the best voices to ever grace the Broadway stage. If you're in NYC go and support this great cause and let me know all about it.
