Cleveland (AP) -- Actors in the broadway smash "Wicked" didn't let screaming and swearing in the audience ruin their performance in Ohio.

The show's tour manager, Steve Quinn, says a drunken brawl broke out Tuesday night at a performance in Cleveland.

He says understudy Kaye Clark, who was playing the green witch named Elphaba was on stage during one of the show's quietest moments when the scuffle started.

Clark broke into the song "I'm not that girl" and kept on singing even as police handcuffed and removed a screaming woman.

The audience gave Clark a standing ovation.

Police say a rowdy audience member was charged with felonious assault for attacking an officer.
