#TuneInThursday: The Wiz LIVE!
It's time for another LIVE production and this year The Wiz is the victim of NBC's live star-studded production treatment.
So who will you be seeing on your TV if you tune it tonight at 8pm EST?
Ne-Yo - Tin Woodman
Uzo Aduba - Glinda
Queen Latifah - Oz
Mary J. Blige - Wicked Witch of the West
Common - Bouncer
Elijah Kelly - Scarecrow
David Alan Grier - Cowardly Lion
Amber Riley - Good Witch of the North
And making her debut is Shanice Williams as Dorothy!
I am not 100% convinced that this will be epic because that was the promise last year when Peter Pan LIVE aired and I ended up disappointed - even though Christopher Walken seemed drunk out of his mind while playing Captain Hook! It will also be painful to watch considering my deep love for all things The Wizard of Oz and The Wiz. The cast is pretty solid so I suppose I'll give it a shot.
There will not be a recap, BUT I will be live tweeting so make sure to give me a follow on Twitter @MissSaverinaS and let me know what you think!
