The sets are lavish, the stagecraft is spectacular, and WICKED satisfies every requirement for a Big Broadway Musical.
L. Frank Baum
There’s no place like home, and this winter you don’t need to drive very far to learn that lesson again at the Walnut Street Theater’s musical THE WIZARD OF OZ.
AMERICAN FAIRY TALES is a kids’ show, adapted by co-artistic director Stan Heleva from L. Frank Baum’s short stories with a generous amount of modernization and localization. This is fast and messy theater making, thriving on audience involvement. The story doesn’t matter as much as the laughs, and the more we shouted along, and the more sassy little Benjamin in the front row jeered and challenged the actors, the more engaged they, and we, became.
