The Wiz

Julia Morgan Theater
2640 College Avenue Berkeley

How wonderful is The Wiz? Winner of seven Tonys, including Best Musical, this Broadway sensation has inspired numerous revivals and a legendary movie starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Today the magic continues as the yellow brick road rolls right across the stage of the Julia Morgan Theater. A retelling of L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the context of African-American culture, The Wiz combines fairy-tale glamor with street-wise soul. Savor a score full of beloved hits like "Ease on Down the Road," "A Brand New Day" and "Home" (a number recently heard on Glee and Smash). Kimberly Dooley (Lucky Duck, Seussical) directs and choreographs a talented cast for this special production from the Berkeley Playhouse. All VIP tickets include guaranteed seating in the first 10 rows as well as a concession coupon and a gift.
