If you can't afford tickets to see Wicked at the Kentucky Center
this month, you might want to head down to The Connection
on Monday, January 12th, where the National Touring Company of Wicked will be hosting "Defying Inequality," a special evening of cabaret performances promoting equality and civil rights. From their press release:
Produced by company members of WICKED, the event will feature members of the cast and crew of the touring company, including Donna Vivino (Elphaba), Richard H. Blake (Fiyero), Ben Liebert (Boq) & Myra Lucretia Taylor (Morrible).
DEFYING INEQUALITY will feature different musical performances that support WICKED's theme of acceptance and illuminate the musicalís message that people should not be judged on first impressions, and that in these divisive times we must come together to support one anotherís rights throughout the country and around the world.
Tickets are $20 each, and proceeds benefit the Fairness Campaign, the Empire State Pride Agenda, Equality California, Garden State Equality, and the Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force, five non-profit charitable organizations working to legislate equality and protect civil rights for the gay and lesbian community.
