Pardon any immodesty, but I am a professional director, writer, and actor, so I am not sure if my personal opinions would represent what the masses of people would probably derive from ALW's current touring production of "The Wizard of Oz." How...continued

I really wanted to like this show & love the Pantages venue, but... Very accurate to the original movie, but some parts missing/edited out of this show. Production values a bit disappointing--only 2 flying monkies (who never flew)!! There must...continued

The Wizard of ODD

Well, for an ALW show it was dreadful. Full of cheap looking sets and customs. No, wow, special effects to cheer - nada. The music he added seemed to be the melody in every new song but with new lyrics each time. This was a...continued

The costumes were INCREDIBLE! Glenda’s dress was beautiful and the monkeys were super scary. All of the favorite songs were included and the original scores fit in nicely. Toto was a real dog who, according to the playbook, even has his own...continued

I brought my two grandsons, 8 and 6. It was a little scary for the 6 year old but after talking to him at intermission explaining these were actors and actresses playing the parts he got it and totally enjoyed the second half. The two of them...continued

I took my 7 year old granddaughter and her best friend. We had pretty good seats, in row W, and they could see, which was great. It was a great experience, and the systems in place worked perfectly. Thank you for always giving great service.

We had a fantastic evening @ Wizard of Oz. The Pantages Theatre was the place. The location by itself was a treat. Fabulous architecture and beautiful art deco setting is a fantastic trip back in time to the Hollywood heyday. Note, however,...continued

The show was very good, despite the preconceived ideas I had from seeing the movie for many years on TV. The new music fit seamlessly into the style of the original music, good staging, good cast, very successful show.

A very pleasant and entertaining show. Some very well-staged and performed musical sequences and authentic heart and sentiment. Not a showstopper or blockbuster, but a creditable production.
