Everybody look around, 'cause the Tony-Award®-winning Best Musical that took the world by storm is back.
THE WIZ returns "home" to stages across America in an all-new Broadway-bound tour, the first one in 40 years. The tour begins in THE WIZ's original home city of Baltimore, where the show made its word premiere 50 years ago.
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.
Directrr Schele Williams (The Notebook, revival of Disney's Aida), choreographer JaQuel Knight (Beyonce's "Single Ladies"), William F. Brown (book), Charlie Smalls (music & lyrics), Amber Ruffin (additional material), and Joseph Joubert (music supervision, orchestrations, & music arrangements) conjure up an Oz like anything ever seen before. A dynamite infusion of ballet, jazz, and modern pop brings a whole new groove to easing on down the road. So everybody rejoice! An all-new 21st-Century WIZ is sliding into an Emerald City near you.
