In class on Wednesday we met with Director Jay Berkow, Choreographer Monique Haley, Music Director Matt Shabala and the actors who portray Dorothy, Scarecrow and Tin Man.
After meeting with the cast from The Wiz, what most excites you about seeing the performance of The Wiz?
As Jay mentioned in class, Musical Theatre and Opera are the most collaborative art forms. What surprised you about the collaborative process between the artistic staff?
What expectations do you have for the performance of The Wiz?
Questions for after seeing the performance:
Which actor was your favorite in the production and why?
How are the themes in this production similar to any previous art work we have viewed this semester?
Which technical element do you think best communicated the story of The Wiz? Why?
After viewing the performance of The Wiz, how did this production either aid you in understanding the story or detract from the story of The Wizard of Oz?
