The Broadway production of the musical Wicked, at the Gershwin Theatre, will host a special talkback on Thursday, October 11 with Ben Cohen, MBE, founder of The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation, and Dan Savage, co-founder of The It Gets Better Project.

Members of the cast will also participate in this special event, held in conjunction with National Coming Out Day, in order to discuss what can be done to help stop the prevalence of bullying. The subject is a theme within the musical, as the witch Elphaba is bullied for her unusual appearance.

A portion of the ticket price will be donated to The It Gets Better Project and The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation.
