This production was entertaining, fun, and didn't put me to sleep like
most other performances i see! I absolutely loved Dorothy and thought
the actress did a phenomenal job. All of the actors, especially the four
main characters, were incredible, but Dorothy blew the performance
out of the water. Her singing, acting, voice, and dancing were all
incredible. Whenever I see plays, the acting usually doesn't impress me;
but Dorothy truly was the perfect fit.
The entire cast did a tremendous job recreating
childhood memories of the movie into living color.
Each cast member did a phenomenal job perfecting
the cadence, accent and mannerisms of the original
cast members. Highly entertaining. You will have
chills from the lion’s performance, but all cast
members gave remarkable performances.
i thought this production was wonderful.
The cast was energetic, talented and fun to
watch. I felt at home with the characters.
Dorothy was great as was her little dog too. I
especially enjoyed the effects used to show
the tornado. I loved the Wicked Witch of the
West....she was a hoot! From the costumes
to the choreography, it was a great evening
of entertainment. i highly recommend for
children and adults alike.
Not sure what I was expecting; but I walked away
wondering why some of the subtle changes in certain
scenes while others where performed verbatim from
the original. For someone who grew up watching the
original movie I found it a bit disconcerting. I really
didn't appreciate the interjection of one liners and
rather lame humor. It made it feel as though one felt
that the original couldn't stand on its own on stage;
which I feel it most surely could. There was certainly
nothing I would call scary, from the sulty evening
gown clad trees to the wicked witch herself. Perhaps
this was intentional as I am sure the intent was to
welcome families with children. The witch was almost
a parody of a wicked witch to me; which again was
quite possibly intentional. The flying scenes left me
rather disappointed; there was really no flying , only
dropping in with wires clearly visible; which made me
wonder; why bother! But all in all, an enjoyable
experience. Personally, lion stole the show for me!
I think children would enjoy the production.
It was rather slow paced. And the extra number in the second act (Jitterbug) didn't really help.
From the Balcony, the projection of the Wizard was only half visible. We could see the mount,
but not the whole face.
Although the show has now moved on ... I think the total cost was too much for the
production and seats we had.
The Actress doing Dorothy was excellent. I thought the Scarecrow part was also very good.
Toto looked scared to death. I felt bad for the puppy.
I took my wife to the Chicago show last
night, for Mothers Day.. The acting, singing
and dancing by the actors was great. The set
and props were horrible. They used a TV
screen in the back. Yhe actual sets were
minimal and not used appropriately. The
first witch scene talking to her monkey, that
was supposed to be at her castle, was
performed in front of the prior OZ set. The
first scene when they visited the wizard,
there were so visions of OZ projected above
the booth, as they were in the second visit.
Definitely noticed it missing in the first one.
Like I said, the actors were good, but the
production seemed amateurish and sloppy. I
paid way to much for a professional play and
left very disappointed. I would not
