Join the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion, Dorothy and her little dog Toto, too, for this fresh adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, featuring new tunes by Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita) and Andrew Lloyd Webber (The Phantom of the Opera, Cats). Everyone loves the story of the girl who wakes up in a strange land filled with witches and wizards, munchkins and monkeys -- and who makes some wonderful friends in her quest to find her way back home. Journey down the yellow brick road through the land of Oz to meet the Wizard while humming along to both new and memorable songs from the Oscar-winning film, including "Over the Rainbow," "We're Off to See the Wizard" and "If I Only Had a Brain."

In Self (the Remix), critically-acclaimed performance artist Robert Farid Karimi offers a fresh view on American identity, remixing personal & political history as he travels from Mexican restaurants to mixed culture moshpits in this electrifying exploration of manhood, nationhood and neighborhood. The child of Iranian and Guatemalan immigrants, Karimi flows through 23 different characters, some real and others imaginary, accompanied by a soundscape spun live onstage by DJ D Double, which ranges from hip-hop to punk to disco and everything in-between.
