Two worlds, set one hundred years apart, collide in this breathtaking new musical by the award-winning team of Barry Kleinbort & Joseph Thalken. Based on the celebrated cult novel by Geoff Ryman, Was begins in the 1870s when a newly orphaned young girl named Dorothy Gael is sent to live with her aunt and uncle in the desolate region of Manhattan, Kansas. Jump to the 1980s where Jonathan, a successful actor obsessed with The Wizard of Oz, journeys to Kansas desperately searching for some proof of Dorothy Gael's existence. This performance offers a compelling and richly tuneful footnote to L. Frank Baum's timeless story, as well as a uniquely memorable evening in the theater.
