“The Wizard & I” with Jason Graae & Tregoney Shepherd from WICKED
Monday, November 12, 2018 8pm
WICKED cast members, Tregoney Shepherd (Phantom, Les Miserables, Mary Poppins) and Jason Graae (Forever Plaid, Ragtime, Falsettos) join forces on their night off from WICKED for an evening of songs that got them hired…and almost got them fired. Songs that are inspired – that is “The Wizard & I”. Other company members include Wicked Musician, Brett Rowe at the Piano.
Proceeds from “The Wizard & I” will benefit PAWS San Diego, a program of San Diego Humane Society and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. These cabaret style fundraisers like “The Wizard & I”, are produced by the WICKED company members themselves and are part of an ongoing series of performances by the touring company to support charitable causes. Since their launch in March 2009, The WICKED National Tour has raised over $5 million in donations for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and local health and service organizations nationwide.
