WIZARD OF OZ
Not sure what I was expecting; but I walked away wondering why some of the subtle changes in certain scenes while others where performed verbatim from the original. For someone who grew up watching the original movie I found it a bit disconcerting. I really didn't appreciate the interjection of one liners and rather lame humor. It made it feel as though one felt that the original couldn't stand on its own on stage; which I feel it most surely could. There was certainly nothing I would call scary, from the sulty evening gown clad trees to the wicked witch herself. Perhaps this was intentional as I am sure the intent was to welcome families with children. The witch was almost a parody of a wicked witch to me; which again was quite possibly intentional. The flying scenes left me rather disappointed; there was really no flying , only dropping in with wires clearly visible; which made me wonder; why bother! But all in all, an enjoyable experience. Personally, lion stole the show for me!

It was very good, but the tree's were more revealing than expected and the witch was hard to understand
