NBC Announces Next Live Musical Will Be ‘The Wiz’

NBC has announced its next live holiday musical production will be The Wiz, a long-running musical theater version of The Wizard Of Oz starring a predominantly African-American cast, which was turned into a movie starring Michael Jackson in 1978. What do you think?

“I don’t know, remakes of adaptations of classic films based on famous books are always hit-or-miss.”

“Good. My VCR machine ate my copy of ‘The Wiz’ and I need to tape a new one.”

Cory Rolland • Fence Erector

“I can’t wait to see which actor gets to disappoint everybody by not being Michael Jackson.”
