The Wiz

Our 11th Season opens with a fantastic stop in the land of Oz. However, our presentation of Oz will not be quite the one you remember from your childhood. In this contemporary version of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, Kansas is replaced by the slums of a fast-paced city in the midst of change. Oz remains Oz, but with new twists and soulful songs.
We are excited to present this energetic redux on what is arguably the greatest American musical ever written, if not the most celebrated. Join us as we continue to explore our new home in downtown New Brunswick at the Tony Award Winning Crossroads Theater.
