WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Wiz first opened on Broadway in 1975 and ran for four years (1600 performances). It made a historic footprint as the first large-scale big-budget musical featuring an all-African American cast. The Wiz won seven Tony Awards including Best Musical and was produced in 1978 by Motown/Universal as a film starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Lena Horne, and Richard Pryor.

The cast of The Wiz will be led by powerhouse performer Felicia Fields as "Evillene". Fields is Tony Award Nominee for Best Featured Actress in Broadway's The Color Purple, also earning her a 2006 Theatre World Award, a Clarence Derwent Award, two Broadway.com awards, an NAACP nomination and a Denver Post Ovation Award. Fields was a 2006 Drama League honoree.
