Glinda the Good. The Wiz Herman Smith. The haughty and condescending people laugh and ridicule this odd party for wanting to see the Wizard until they see that Dorothy is wearing the Witch of the East's silver slippers.
They are promptly shown right into his palace. Once in the throne room, they are assaulted by a great show of lights, smoke, and pyrotechnics as the Wizard appears in several forms before them "So You Wanted To See the Wizard".
He agrees on one condition: they must kill Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West. With their goals seeming further out of reach than ever before, Dorothy and her companions sink to the floor in tears.
Evillene rules over the yellow land of the west, enslaving its people, the Winkies. She is evil, power hungry, and ruthlessly determined to get her hands on the silver slippers, so that she may increase her power and rule over all of Oz "Don't Nobody Bring Me No Bad News".
Receiving word of Dorothy and her friends approaching, she sends her Winged Monkeys to kill them "Funky Monkeys". Catching up to the group in the forest surrounding Evillene's castle, the monkeys dash the Tin Man against rocks until he falls apart, and rip the straw out of the Scarecrow, leaving both of them helpless.
Seeing Dorothy's silver slippers, however, they dare not harm her. Instead, they carry her to Evillene's castle along with the Lion.
While searching for a way to get the slippers from Dorothy, Evillene forces her and the Lion to do menial chores around her castle.
She takes delight in torturing the Lion before Dorothy, threatening to have him skinned unless she hands over the silver slippers.
Angered by this, she picks up a bucket of water and throws it over Evillene, who melts until only her magic golden cap remains. Returning to the Emerald City, they see the Wizard now a booming voice that seems to come from the very air.
He reneges on his promise, and the Lion knocks over a screen in anger. Behind it stands a bewildered man who claims to be the real Wizard.
He shows them the elaborate mechanical effects used to create his illusions, and tells them that he is really a balloonist from Omaha named Herman Smith who traveled to Oz by accident when his hot air balloon drifted off course.
The people of Oz had never seen such a sight and proclaimed him Wizard. Not wanting to disappoint them, he assumed the role and had a great city built.
He then had everyone in it wear green glasses, and in time, they came to believe it was green. They remain unconvinced, so he creates physical symbols of their desires and they are satisfied.
He proposes that Dorothy can return to Kansas the way he came, and offers to pilot her in his hot air balloon.
He addresses the citizens of the Emerald City in person for the first time in many years, telling them of his imminent journey, and leaving the Scarecrow in charge "Y'all Got It!
Just as his speech reaches its climax, the balloon comes free from its moorings and rises quickly into the air, taking Dorothy's hopes of getting home with it.
Just as the group despairs of finding help, Addaperle reappears in a flash of light, suggesting that Dorothy ask Glinda, the Good Witch of the South , for assistance.
She transports them to Glinda's castle in the red land of the south, where they are warmly welcomed and invited to rest after their many trials "A Rested Body Is a Rested Mind".
Glinda is a beautiful and gracious sorceress, surrounded by a court of pretty girls. She tells Dorothy that the silver slippers have always had the power to take her home, but like her friends, she needed to believe in their magic and in herself before it was possible "If You Believe".
Dorothy bids a tearful goodbye to her friends, and as their faces fade into the darkness, she thinks about what she has gained, lost, and learned throughout her journey through Oz "Home".
Clicking her heels together three times, she finds herself transported back to Kansas in an instant.
As an overjoyed Aunt Em and Toto appear, and Dorothy runs to hug them, she knows that she is back home at last "Finale".
Motown Productions acquired the film rights to The Wiz in and signed Stephanie Mills in anticipation of having her star as Dorothy in the film adaptation.
Motown singer and actress Diana Ross asked Motown CEO Berry Gordy to cast her instead, but he declined, feeling that the thenyear-old Ross was far too old for the part.
However, she contacted Rob Cohen of Universal Pictures , who offered to have them finance the film if she were to play Dorothy, at which point he acquiesced.
Sidney Lumet served as director, working with screenwriter Joel Schumacher who used none of Brown's stage script and music supervisor Quincy Jones.
The film was a critical and commercial failure, performing poorly at the box office and severely panned by critics, who branded the casting of Ross instead of Mills as Dorothy a disastrous blunder.
The project fell through due to Universal still having the film rights to adaptations of The Wiz , and the production was shelved. Blige was confirmed to play the role of Evillene.
The song "Wonder, Wonder, Why" was added for the Broadway revival, but is not part of the current licensed score.
In his review of the revival, Frank Rich wrote: "What made The Wiz surprisingly moving the first time around was that its creators found a connection between Baum's Kansas fantasy and the pride of urban black Americans.
When Glinda, the good witch, musically instructed Dorothy to 'believe in herself,' she seemed to be delivering a broader inspirational message.
The Wiz was hardly a great musical in , but it had something to say, and it said it with verve and integrity.
It's depressing to watch a once-fervent expression of black self-respect and talent be spilled on the stage as if it were a trunkload of marked-down, damaged goods.
In their review of the La Jolla production, Variety wrote: "'The Wiz' remains a collage of contemporary slang and imagery, but La Jolla's is a multicultural collage in which Baum's themes speak to the broadest possible audience.
Unquestionably, the humor and the heartbeat of the piece remain African-American at their source, but the overall effect is pluralistic and inclusive.
In the truest and most positive sense of the phrase, McAnuff's show is color-blind. Every alteration from the original, inspired by the central multicultural concept, is salutary.
Brown's almost wholly rewritten script is tart and funny at last. Smalls' score—supervised by musical director Ron Melrose and original orchestrator Harold Wheeler—sounds fresh and contemporary".
While well received, the album omits several key songs from the musical that were not recorded for the album- such as the show's overture, dance and accompaniment music.
The "Tornado" instrumental was released as both a 7" single and a 12" extended single, while the show's musical arranger Harold Wheeler co-produced a cover of "Ease on Down the Road" with studio group Consumer Rapport that became a charting single in , peaking at 42 on the Billboard Hot In , the original Broadway cast recording of The Wiz was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or artistically significant.

DMC World Magazine. Theater Mania. By the start of development on The Wiz in , he and his brothers The Jacksons had left Motown for Epic Records after the release of their tenth album Moving Violation , though Jackson had yet to make a solo album since his fourth album Forever, Michael.
Rob Cohen , head of Motown Productions, thought Jackson would be perfect for the role of the Scarecrow, and approached Berry Gordy with the idea, who agreed, though director Sidney Lumet was harder to convince.
Jackson's father, Joseph Jackson , was wary of the project and saw it as a threat to the Jacksons group cohesion.
Cohen moved Michael and his sister La Toya Jackson into a Manhattan apartment, allowing him to be on his own for the first time. During the production, he became a frequent visitor to New York's famous Studio Jackson was dedicated to the Scarecrow role, and watched videotapes of gazelles , cheetahs and panthers in order to learn graceful movements for his part.
During the production of the film, Jackson asked Quincy Jones who he would recommend as a producer on a yet unrecorded solo album project.
Jones, impressed by Jackson's professionalism, talent and work ethic on the film, offered to be producer of what became Off The Wall , then later on the hugely successful albums Thriller and Bad Ted Ross and Mabel King were brought in to reprise their respective roles from the stage musical, while Nipsey Russell was cast as the Tin Man.
Quincy Jones was the musical supervisor and music producer for the film. Critics panned The Wiz upon its October release. Hollywood , the author criticized the script, noting, " The Wiz was too scary for children, and too silly for adults.
Jackson's performance as the Scarecrow was one of the only positively reviewed elements of the film, with critics noting that Jackson possessed "genuine acting talent" and "provided the only genuinely memorable moments.
I'll never forget that. The New York Times analyzed the film within a discussion of the genre of blaxploitation : "As the audience for blaxploitation dwindled, it seemed as if Car Wash and The Wiz might be the last gasp of what had been a steadily expanding black presence in mainstream filmmaking.
Petersburg Times noted, "Of course, it only took one flop like The Wiz to give Hollywood an excuse to retreat to safer i.
Yet, without blaxploitation there might not have been another generation of black filmmakers, no Denzel Washington or Angela Bassett , or they might have taken longer to emerge.
To appreciate just how outmoded, deceptive and limiting it is, consider the following, all of which have been described as black films,.
Despite its lack of critical or commercial success in its original release, The Wiz became a cult classic ,  especially because it features Michael Jackson in his first starring theatrical film role.
Jackson later starred in films such as Disney 's Captain EO in , the anthology film Moonwalker in and the posthumous documentary This Is It in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
