Article Pixel
After selling out shows across Chicago, "WOZ: A Rock Cabaret," is back by popular demand for five performances only from July 14 - 17, 2016 at Victory Gardens Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave. in Chicago. Joining the original cast as the Wizard is Tony Award-nominated actor André De Shields, Broadway's original "The Wiz" (1975). Inspired by the beloved film The Wizard of Oz, these Ozians will follow the yellow brick road to the tune of iconic rock anthems from the '80s and '90s. It's like your favorite radio station but better... because it has witches and munchkins!

"WOZ: A Rock Cabaret" is created by Kimberly Lawson and Will Rogers, with direction by Scott Gryder and music direction by Nick Sula. The return engagement features original cast members Kimberly Lawson (Dorothy), Heather Currie (Wicked Witch), Clara D'Onofrio (Glinda), Edward Fraim (Lion), David Lipschutz (Munchkin, Winkie Soldier), James Nedrud (Tin Man), Kevin Webb (Scarecrow) and Sarah Wurz (Munchkin, Winkie Soldier).

Tickets, priced at $40, are currently available at www.victorygardens.org, by calling at (773) 871-3000 or in person at the Victory Gardens Theater box office. Students and senior discounts are available. The press opening is Friday, July 15 at 7:30 pm.
