ActUp Theater is getting ready to Ease On Down the Road!!!
ActUp Theater is preparing their most ambitious spring musicals – seven-time Tony award winner, The Wiz. This fun, an energetic soul-filled musical is an urbanized retelling of L. Frank Baum’s classic children’s novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
The timeless musical sensation The Wiz is a multi-cultural view of Oz with a soulful twist. It tells a touching story of friendship, family, and the universal power of home, while featuring a slew of now-classic pop songs like No Bad News, Brand New Day, Home, and Ease On Down the Road, made famous by Diana Ross and Michael Jackson!
Coming off its extremely successful holiday production of “Ebony Annie” ActUp Theater will bring the 70s production to the present with some remixes and hip-hop flava!
The 1975 original Broadway production won seven Tony® Awards, including Best Musical. It will bring back childhood memories while creating new ones with leading cast Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion ease their way down a fabulous yellow brick road to meet the great and powerful Wiz.
