A Wicked Good Time

Are you one of the half-billion locals who didn’t nab a ticket to Wicked? Oh, stop crying in your witch’s brew! Here’s 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 Three’s 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.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
