The yellow brick road will stretch across the U.S. in the first national tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber's new stage adaptation of The Wizard of Oz!
Andrew Lloyd Webber's lauded new production of The Wizard Of Oz is an enchanting adaptation of the perennial MGM classic, totally reimagined for the stage. Following highly successful runs in London and Toronto, the show is embarking on the ever-winding Yellow Brick Road that is the USA!
Containing all the beloved songs from the Academy Award-winning movie score, it features all your favorite characters and iconic moments (plus a few new surprises along the way), including new songs.
Click your ruby slippers together and join Dorothy and Toto as they venture through the magical land of Oz. Dorothy, a corn-fed wide-eyed farmgirl from Kansas has accidently landed in Oz after her house was swept up in a tornado, killing the Wicked Witch of the East by squishing her underneath. Lauded as the savior of Oz, Dorothy meets three extraordinary characters, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion, on the way to meet the Wizard in his beautiful Emerald City, who also have their heart's desires to be granted. At the same time they must thwart the Wicked Witch of the West and her winged monkeys, as she seeks vengeance for her sister's demise. Rediscover the classic story of Oz in this fantastic musical treat for all the family.
The original 1939 movie nearly passed over Judy Garland starring as Dorothy, as studio bosses at the time wanted Shirley Temple for the role!
