EASE ON DOWN

In our family watching The Wiz with Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Lena Horne & Nipsey Russell was simply a pure joy. So when I was invited to see The Wiz musical I was so excited to listen to all my favorite songs live. The Wiz musical didn’t disappoint. The vocals were powerful from all, including but not limited to The Scarecrow, The Lion, The Tinman, Evillene, Glinda the Good witch, All the witches, and The Wiz all blew me away. However, one had a pair of larger shoes to fill that may have been a little too big for her. The character Dorothy was previously played by Stephanie Mills on Broadway & then played by Diana Ross in the movie version of The Wiz. In The Wiz on 5th Ave Theatre the role of Dorothy deserved to be played by someone who could sing with the same power like The Scarecrow, The Lion & The Tinman or Glinda. And here is where The Wiz simply fell short. Dorothy, while a beautiful vocalist, when singing those big songs like Home left me wanting so much more.

ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE

I could not disagree with the last statement of the only other review that currently exists more. The actress who played the role of Dorothy was ABSOLUTELY incredible, by a mile the best vocalist in the show, who gave me chills multiple times throughout the show. Outside of her, the Lion and the Tinman were standouts in the main cast, and Glinda and The Wiz were incredible vocalists as well. The only vocalist that was a disappointment for me was the Scarecrow, but his characterization was excellent. RUN, don't walk, to see this show.

EXCELLENT, OUTSTANDING

Dorothy was outstanding and I have seen the Wiz with Diana Ross and Judy Garland and the show at 5th Ave did them both proud. I took my three grandkids(7yr and 4yr) and they loved it. My 4yr old was a little scared of the "Red Eyes" but she love it all. My 7yr olds said they loved the tinman~ he stole the show for them. All in all the show was "fantastic " thank you!!!
