A musical retelling of L. Frank Baum’s Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Set in the context of modern African-American culture, this show shattered barriers on Broadway and beyond.

Very many know the story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but in this 1970’s musical version’s a fantasy for modern audiences - mysterious, opulent and fanciful - a dream conjured up by a space-age child with Dorothy’s adventures in the Land of Oz set to music in a dazzling, lively mixture of rock, gospel and soul.
