The Wiz toured the US in 1976… so that must be when I saw it. Not sure anymore why I went but it blew my mind with joy… positive thoughts and fun. They brought it back to TV live and got it right.
I hated the movie which forgot it was all about the child coming of age… Going out into the world to getaway only to discover the value of family that …when one discovers that snowflakes have meaning and that moment when you want time to be your friend… while you still can return Home!
They got it right!
