Are you one of the half-billion locals who didnt nab a ticket to Wicked? Oh, stop crying in your witchs brew! Heres a chance to watch the Wicked cast work in a different light and a cozier venue than the Buell: Wicked Rocks!, a one-night-only, cast-produced Project Angel Heart benefit at the Bluebird Theater, will feature touring company members including Richard H. Blake (Fiyero), Ben Liebert (Boq) and Merideth Kaye Clark (Elphaba, baby!) belting it out on a long list of hits of the rock-and-roll pantheon, from Beatles favorites to some good old Freddie Mercury histrionics. And hosting the revue will be the Wizard himself, Richard Kline, who in another life played Larry on Threes Company.
Wicked Rocks begins at 8 p.m. at the Bluebird, 3317 East Colfax Avenue; for tickets, available for a donation of $25 to $75, go to www.projectangelheart.org or www.ticketmaster.com.
