NBC embarks on its latest musical holiday tradition: a 3-hour LIVE event production of the groundbreaking Broadway show that brought Oz to life in a funky sing-along journey down the yellow brick road.
Winner of 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, the original massive Broadway hit spawned a feature film starring Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Now, a Tony-winning creative team, the imaginative Cirque du Soleil Theatrical and a diverse cast of showstoppers create an eye-popping new take unlike anything ever seen.
From Executive Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron comes an adventure of stunning spectacle and toe-tapping music.
In an epic night of stars, spectacle and song, follow the yellow brick road to the dazzling land of Oz with Queen Latifah, Mary J. Blige, David Alan Grier, Ne-Yo and many more in THE WIZ LIVE! The Tony Award®-Winning musical comes home in the season’s must-see event for the whole family. Premieres LIVE Thursday Dec 3rd at 8/7c – only on NBC.
