The Wiz on Broadway Tickets
About The Wiz on Broadway
Travel to Oz and experience a world of magic, friendship, and whimsy right alongside Dorothy in the The Wiz musical on Broadway. The revival of the seven-time Tony winning production takes The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum and fills it with soul, pop, gospel, and jazz in a celebration of Black culture. Directed by Schele Williams and starring Wayne Brady as the Wiz, this family-friendly production is a tale of overcoming adversity and finding your place in the world.
Composer/lyricist Charlie Smalls and bookwriter William F. Brown both won Tony Awards for their work when the show premiered on Broadway in 1975. The Wiz ran for four years — a total of 1,672 performances. Now, The Wiz is once again on Broadway with additional material by comedian Amber Ruffin, making the musical funnier and fresher than ever before.
The musical later took the silver screen by storm in 1978. The film earned four Academy Award nominations and boasts a talented cast including Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Richard Pryor, and Mabel King.
Ease on down the road to The Wiz at the Marquis Theatre, and prepare to be blown away by the heartfelt story and unforgettable music and dance.
