I saw the original touring Wiz in SF in the 70's and have loved the music and sing it regularly at open mics. This production furthered my exurberance for the positive feelings and fun it produces. (The movie, unfortunately, ruined people's perception of this great theatre piece. Too bad.) In fact, I sent an email to President Obama in 2008 and asked him to include "Brand New Day" in his inaugural festivities. Perfect song for the exciting event, but I guess it didn't get to the right people. :-) Plus, as a manager, when someone came into my office, I looked them straight in the eye and sang "don't nobody bring no bad news". This cast was amazing, young and older. Thanks to everyone for bringing this back to me. I was mouthing all the words, but held back singing along. Tough one. Pat Saye
