Everybody look around! The Wiz
, the Tony Award®-winning Best Musical that took the world by storm is back.
This groundbreaking twist on The Wizard of Oz
changed the face of Broadway—from its iconic score packed with soul, gospel, rock, and finger-snapping 70s funk to its stirring tale of Dorothy’s journey to find her place in a contemporary world.
Conjuring up an Oz unlike anything ever seen before, the creative team is helmed by director Schele Williams (The Notebook
, revival of Disney’s Aida
) and includes choreographer JaQuel Knight (Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”), William F. Brown (book), Charlie Smalls (music & lyrics), Amber Ruffin (additional material), Joseph Joubert (music supervision, orchestrations, & music arrangements), Allen René Louis (vocal arrangements, music arrangements), and Emmy Award-winning music director and Grammy Award-winning writer Adam Blackstone (dance music arrangements).
A dynamite infusion of ballet, jazz, and modern pop brings a whole new groove to easing on down the road. So everybody rejoice!
