About this show

In this adaptation of L. Frank Baum's imaginative novel, Dorothy is whisked away by a tornado to the magical land of Oz. There, she and her sidekicks encounter Munchkins, flying monkeys, and a power-hungry witch named Evillene who vows to destroy them. Ease on down the road and rediscover this imaginative story celebrating community, courage, heart, brains, and friendship.

Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, The Wiz made history by celebrating black culture through its joyful score of soul, gospel, R&B, and pop as well as through its African-Creole-inspired costume and set design.
