“The Wiz: The Super Soul Musical” is a glorious musical retelling of Frank Baum’s “Wonderful Wizard of Oz” set in the context of African-American culture. With an infectious, funky-soul score and lyrics by Charlie Smalls, The Wiz brought renewed relevance to a timeless classic. The 1975 Broadway production was like nothing Broadway had ever seen, and ultimately won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Score.
Please be aware strobe lights are used during this production.
