About “The Wiz”  

Producers Kristin Caskey, Mike Isaacson, Brian Anthony Moreland, and Ambassador Theatre Group present an all-new production of the groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical “The Wiz,” adapted from “The Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. The highly anticipated Broadway revival of “The Wiz” returns “home” to stages across America in an all-new Pre-Broadway tour, the first one in 40 years. The tour begins in “The Wiz’s” original home city of Baltimore, where the show made its world premiere 50 years ago.

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.  Audiences get to enjoy the epic grooves of such beloved, timeless hits as “Ease on Down the Road,” which became the show’s break-out single, and the bona fide classic “Home” in this spectacular revival.
