Love the musical Wicked? Love marriage equality? Bring the two together by attending a very special benefit on Monday, Jan. 12, where, across the country, four casts of the hit musical will perform in honor of LGBT rights.

The events will be held simultaneously in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Louisville (where the National Tour is performing), and feature cast members from Wicked as well as special guest performers.

These one-night only events will benefit Empire State Pride Agenda, Equality California, Garden State Equality and Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force, four non-profit organizations working to legislate equality and protect civil rights for the gay and lesbian community. All proceeds will be distributed evenly among the four organizations.

So what are you waiting for? Why merely "Defy Gravity" when you could be DEFYING INEQUALITY? Get your tickets, already!
