Crossing paths with enchanting friends and wicked foes, Dorothy's journey is a timeless tale about friendship, courage and learning to believe in oneself. Starring Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, Uzo Aduba, Ne-Yo, and a host of other talented performers, "The Wiz Live!" invites viewers of all ages to ease on down the yellow brick road for a vibrant musical adventure unlike any other.
