Wicked, Hamilton, and Beautiful: Combined! One Show only! December 11! CHICAGO!

What do you get when you mix the members of the cast of three hit musicals, all performing their favorite songs on the same stage?  Some would say the best of all worlds!

If you are in that group, you should know that members of the national touring companies of WICKED and BEAUTIFUL – THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL, as well as the  HAMILTON Chicago company members, are combining efforts for charity.

The cabaret, entitled “We Three Shows: A Broadway Holiday Benefit,” is produced by the company members themselves, and will benefit two charities:  Chicago House & Social Service Agency and  Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS.

The benefit will take place at Thalia Hall (1807 South Allport Street) on Monday, December 11, 2017 at 7:30PM. Doors open at 6:00PM for VIP ticketed guests and 7:00PM for general admission.

Tickets are currently on sale now at 

General Admission tickets are available for $65 (main floor) and $85 (balcony seating). VIP tickets are available for $150 and include a pre-show reception with the performers at 6:00PM, reserved premier seating, catered light hors d’oeuvres, and complimentary drinks. A limited number of premium opera boxes are available for $550 which includes seating for six at the foot of the stage.

The evening will include a live auction featuring backstage tours – including costuming, makeup and “watching from the wings” opportunities, performance tickets, and an opportunity for walk on roles. You can also expect a lot of great songs sung by the cast members (although sadly, there will be no mashup entitled Wicked Beautiful Hamilton, about a sincere green-skinned patriot trying to change the world by writing songs about a mythical place called America.  (I wish!)

Net proceeds raised from the benefit will support adults and children living with HIV/AIDS as well as those at risk for HIV through wraparound services provided by Chicago House, including housing, employment services, medical linkage and retention, and prevention services.


Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS is one of the nation’s leading industry-based, nonprofit AIDS fundraising and grant-making organizations. By drawing upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the American theatre community, since 1988 BC/EFA has raised more than $300 million for essential services for people with AIDS and other critical illnesses across the United States. 

Chicago House and Social Service Agency
has been on the forefront of reducing barriers for those affected by HIV/AIDS since the early years of the epidemic. Founded in 1985, Chicago House was the first HIV housing provider in the Midwest. Chicago House provides integrated programs inclusive of housing, employment services, medical linkage and retention services, HIV prevention services, trans specific services, and supportive programming to those who are disenfranchised by HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ marginalization, poverty, homelessness, and/or gender nonconformity.
