About the Show

THE WIZ will is back on Broadway with Wayne Brady as The Wiz!

Everybody look around! The Tony Award®-winning Best Musical that took the world by storm is back.

This groundbreaking twist on The Wizard of Oz changed the face of Broadway—from its iconic score packed with soul, gospel, rock, and finger-snapping 70s funk to its stirring tale of Dorothy’s journey to find her place in a contemporary world.

Conjuring up an Oz unlike anything ever seen before, the creative team is helmed by director Schele Williams (The Notebook, revival of Disney’s Aida) and includes choreographer JaQuel Knight (Beyonce’s “Single Ladies”), William F. Brown (book), Charlie Smalls (music & lyrics), Amber Ruffin (additional material), and Joseph Joubert (music supervision, orchestrations, & music arrangements).  They are joined by scenic designer and Academy Award winner Hannah Beachler (Black Panther, Beyonce’s Black is King and Lemonade), costume designer and Emmy and two-time Academy Award nominee Sharen Davis (RayDreamgirls), lighting designer and Barrymore Award winner Ryan J. O’Gara (Thoughts of a Colored Man) and wig designer and Drama Desk award winner Charles LaPointe (MJ the Musical).

A dynamite infusion of ballet, jazz, and modern pop brings a whole new groove to easing on down the road. So everybody rejoice! An all-new 21st-Century WIZ is sliding into an Emerald City near you.
