The Wizard of Oz: A Jazz Musical for All Ages

from Jonathan Slaff

"The Wizard of Oz: A Jazz Musical for All Ages" is a magical experience
for young (and young-at-heart) audiences. The production is based on
MGM’s classic motion picture, with its timeless score and eternal
allegories, and is enhanced by jazzy arrangements. It follows John
Kane's adaptation for the Royal Shakespeare Company, which is based on
the book by L. Frank Baum, with brilliant songs by lyricist E.Y. ("Yip")
Harburg and composer Harold Arlen. The cast is multi-racial and features
Latino, Black and Asian actors, fulfilling Yip Harburg's vision of a
multicultural universe. Presented by Harlem Repertory Theater and Yip
Harburg Foundation, directed by Keith Lee Grant. (from )
