Collaborative Cabarets: An Evening Of New Musical Theatre, Will Feature Company Members From the Tour of WICKED
Under the Arch Incubator and cast and crew of the National Touring Company of WICKED will host "Collaborative Cabarets: An Evening of New Musical Theatre," an evening of song and dance at Blue Strawberry in St. Louis, 364 N Boyle Ave., on Monday evening, December 16. Doors will open at 6:00 PM for a VIP Meet and Greet with cast members from The National Tour of WICKED, and the concert will begin at 7:00 PM. (Selections from Blue Strawberry's dinner menu will be available for purchase.) Net proceeds will benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) and Under the Arch Incubator.
Produced by company members of WICKED, the evening is an opportunity for them to step out of their roles in the musical and kick up their heels performing some of their favorite non-Ozian material. Collaborative Cabarets is an event that benefits both Broadway Cares and Under the Arch Incubator.
Collaborative Cabarets is part of an ongoing series of performances by the touring company to support charitable causes. The WICKED Tour has raised millions of dollars in donations for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and local AIDS service organizations all over the country.
