As you might already know, The Wiz Live! is premiering on Dec. 3 and it’s probz going to be amazing.
It’s a live performance of the now-classic 1970s musical, which was famously made into a film starring Michael Jackson, Diana Ross, Lena Horne, Richard Pryor, and many other incredible performers.
The musical, which was written to feature an all-black cast, is based loosely on The Wizard of Oz, which had its own screen adaptation.
Let the record show that The Wizard of Oz had an all-white cast.
Some people aren’t aware of the difference between the two, though, and seem ~confused~.
Still not getting it.
Maybe we should tell them that The Wiz and The Wizard of Oz are two different musicals.
And that there’s already been an all-white Wizard of Oz.
Because they really seem confused.
Not grasping the concept. Or the irony.
Sorry, everyone, but Glee did it first.
