A musical retelling of L. Frank Baum’s Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Set in the context of modern African-American culture, this show shattered barriers on Broadway and beyond.

Restless in her Kansas existence, Dorothy finds herself ready to explore the world. A powerful tornado grants her wish and transports her to the whimsical land of Oz. Along the yellow brick road, she meets an otherworldly cast of characters: Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Cowardly Lion. This unlikely trio end up helping Dorothy as she makes her way to the Emerald City to meet with the Wizard. Their trek isn’t without hiccups including a battle with the Wicked Witch of the West. Featuring titles like, “Ease on Down the Road”, “Home”, and “Believe in Yourself” The Wiz is a bedazzling production full of R&B, jazz, gospel, and pop about the significance and beauty of home.
