The Wiz

This upbeat, pop, inventive interpretation of the classic L. Frank Baum novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz won the Tony in 1975. The show includes a gospel, rock, pop, jazz, funk, and blues score that includes the hit song "Ease On Down the Road." The story of Dorothy in the land of Oz has never been hipper.
