I cannot WAIT to see the highly anticipated broad way hit we all love… The WIZ Live! coming your way Thursday Dec 3rd on NBC! I’ve seen a few videos including Stephanie Mills (previous Dorothy) working with rising star Shanice Williams and it’s going to be AMAZING 🙂
From Executive Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron comes an awe-inspiring adventure overflowing with stunning spectacle and toe-tapping music. “The Wiz Live!” features an all-star cast including Queen Latifah as The Wiz, Mary J. Blige as Evillene, David Alan Grier as Cowardly Lion, Ne-Yo as Tin Man, Elijah Kelley as Scarecrow, Uzo Aduba as Glinda, Amber Riley as Addaperle, Common as Bouncer, Stephanie Mills as Auntie Em, and newcomer Shanice Williams as Dorothy.
Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the original show was a massive hit on Broadway and even spawned a feature film starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Now, a Tony-winning creative team, the hugely imaginative Cirque du Soleil Theatrical, and a diverse cast of show-stopping performers will come together to create an eye-popping new take unlike anything seen before.
Don’t forget… gather the entire family to tune in Thursday DEC 3 and “ease on down the road” with The WIZ Live!
