This

performance will feature adjustments to light and sound, a relaxed audience environment, and pre-show materials that outline what to expect during a visit to Ford's.

There, she and her sidekicks encounter Munchkins, flying monkeys and a power-hungry witch named Evillene who vows to destroy them. Winner of seven Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Best Original Score, "The Wiz" is a musical feast featuring soul, gospel, R&B and pop. Rediscover the power of courage, heart, brains and friendship.
