The Wizard of Oz, by
What a trip to OZ!!! I want to go back!!!
Sunday, June 24, 2007
4.5
As a "New Yorker" and a huge fan of Theater I have seen many shows. I must say this production of the Wizard of Oz was outstanding. In my opinion, the production was only limited by its venue. The caliber of the performers and the director far exceeded my expectations. There were many humorous moments. The emotions the leads presented were very believable. Munchkins were very cute. Most vocals were quality but overshadowed by the sound equipment. The dancers/ensemble made the show. There were so many unexpected surprises that made this production one you could watch over and over and still get a good laugh! I love the modern twist the dancers provided. My only question is how they were able to make so many costume changes so quickly. The costumes were very clever. Great artistic creativity was given to every element of the show. The sets could have used a bit more glitz especially in Munchkin Land and Oz, but again that was probably because, as I understand it, a new playhouse (limited funds Iím sure). I heard about this show on Good Day Atlanta a couple of weeks ago and went because I was curious how the director would be able to modernize an old favorite. GREAT JOB keeping true to the story line but adding a breath of fresh air to the play! It would be fabulous to see this production in a larger better-equipped facility. You should take this show on the road!!!
