Summary
Dorothy, the Scarecrow, a witch named Evillene and that charismatic huckster the Wiz will light up the stage in this uproarious, song-filled adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, told through the lens of the African-American experience. With its arch social commentary, journey of self-discovery and infectious songs like “Ease On Down the Road,” The Wiz won seven Tony Awards and had a triumphant four-year run on Broadway. OSF is thrilled to bring this cultural touchstone of the 1970s to our outdoor Allen Elizabethan Theatre.
