BWW Review: Magical THE WIZARD OF OZ at Theatre By The Sea
by Andria Tieman - Jul 26, 2016

It's a bit of a risky proposition to take on a classic story that is a huge part of most people's childhoods. Do you try to change it up? Do you try to keep it true to the movie or book? How do you capture the wonder that a child would feel seeing it for the first time?  I don't know exactly how one does that, but Theatre by the Sea certainly managed it handily with their new production of THE WIZARD OF OZ.  Even a story as well-known as The Wizard of Oz seemed fresh and new but still perfectly timeless.  Fantastic performances, amazing vocal talents and elaborate sets and special effects take this world of imagination and bring it right to life.
