Dorothy, our gal from Kansas, gets fun and funky when she eases on down the yellow brick road, right along with Scarecrow, Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion. The Wiz, a modern retelling of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, won seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The score by Charlie Smalls includes beloved hits, “Ease On Down the Road,” “Brand New Day” and “Home” (which has been recently featured on both Fox’s GLEE and ABC’s SMASH.)
