CHICAGO, IL— Members of the National Touring companies of WICKED and BEAUTIFUL — THE CAROLE KING MUSICAL, and HAMILTON Chicago company members, will host "We Three Shows: A Broadway Holiday Benefit," a cabaret concert benefitting Chicago House and Social Service Agency and Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The benefit will take place at Thalia Hall ( 1807 South Allport Street ) on December 11, 2017 at 7:30 PM. Doors open at 6:00 PM for VIP ticketed guests and 7:00 PM for general admission.

General Admission tickets are available for $65 ( main floor ) and $85 ( balcony seating ).

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.
