It was a fabulous production! Great acting. Hilarious lines and physical comedy. Fantastic choreography and set design. This was like being at a Broadway production. Julia Morgan Theater does it again!

Started with two tickets and ended up with five. They seated us in one group even though the tickets were purchased at different times.
Loved the show! Fabulous cast, good choreography, fun costumes and creative sets.

The Berkeley Playhouse production of The Wiz was really great and very enjoyable to attend. Definitely recommend others to go see it this week before their last performance on Aug. 25th.

The Wiz was a fantastic show. Every member of the cast shined. And thanks to Goldstar VIP tix we were in the second row. I would go back and see it again tomorrow if I could.
