Why See The Wiz?

The Wiz brings magic to the Ford's in 2018!

A winner of seven Tony Awards, the sleeper hit Broadway musical from 1975 by Charlie Smalls heads to the Ford's Theatre in the 2018 spring season. A ground-breaking musical for its time, The Wiz reinvents Frank M. Baum's The Wizard of Oz with an-all African American cast, and a score infused with soul and gospel. Helmed by Kent Gash, this brand-new production of the beloved classic will set the stage alight with exuberant choreography and uplifting tunes including Among its most famous numbers are 'Be a Lion' and 'Ease on Down the Road'.

This Broadway blockbuster injects the classic story of The Wizard of Oz with irresistible jazz, R&B, and gospel tunes, creating a true classic of African American musical theatre. Join Dorothy Gale and her friends as they, "ease on down the road" to the Emerald City where they meet the most powerful and coolest ruler in all of children's literature - The Wiz.
