“The Wiz”

“THE WIZ”

 

The Super Soul Musical “Wonderful Wizard of Oz”, winner of seven Tony awards in 1975

Book by William F. Brown

Lyrics by Charlie Smalls

Directed by Joy Powell

A modern retelling of L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s story reflecting contemporary African-American music.  After Dorothy gets swept up in a tornado, she finds herself in the fantastical world of Oz, but in this version, she is on Soul Train, in Chicago, circa 1970. An explosion of magic and heart for audiences of all ages.
