"Following the Yellow Brick Road has never been so much fun or as magical!
Spares no detail with its dazzling set design, eye-catching costumes, original choreography and moving numbers. ‘The Wiz’ is full of heart, courage and soul and will leave the audience feeling upbeat and full of encouragement as they ease on down the road. As Dorothy, Ines Nassara is magnetic with her glowing smile, positive energy and powerful vocals.
Her trusty travel companions are also a joy to watch. The sprightly Scarecrow portrayed by Hasani Allen is quite nimble on his feet and gives a fantastic performance with the catchy 'I Was Born The Day Before Yesterday,' while the Tinman portrayed by Kevin McAllister is stirring when he sings 'What Would I Do If I Could Feel' despite believing that he has no heart. Christopher Michael Richardson revels in his role as Lion, a soft scaredy cat, full of life who attracts attention with 'Mean Ole Lion' and plenty of fierceness and wisecracks along the way.
As The Wiz, Jobari Parker-Namdar captures the duality of the character, flashy and over-the-top in the energetic 'So You Want to Meet the Wizard,' and more grounded and human with the beautiful solo 'Believe in Yourself.' Meanwhile, Monique Midgette is a triple threat as Aunt Em, Addaperle and Evillene, and brings sparkle to each of her roles and songs. Finally, Awa Sal Secka as Glinda gives the audience all the feels with 'A Rested Body Is a Rested Mind' and a reprise of 'Believe in Yourself.'"
