THE WIZ [LIVE] on stage

Everyone knows the story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but in this new musical version it’s a fantasy for today – mysterious, opulent and fanciful – a dream conjured up by a space-age child with Dorothy’s adventures in the Land of Oz set to music in a dazzling, lively mixture of country, rock, gospel and soul.  (Adapted into a film version featuring Michael Jackson and Diana Ross.)

“Radiates so much energy you can hardly sit in your seta … great fun.”
– The New York Post

“A continuous festival of movement … splendid character songs.”

“A carnival of fun … wickedly amusing show.” – Time

“A virtual music circus … driving rhythms, soaring songs … boisterous, exuberant.”
