The Wiz at the Marquis Theatre

The Wiz

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 (Ray, Dreamgirls), 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).
