Concert Version of El Wiz

May 26, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz” gets re-set in contemporary Puerto Rico in Paul Castañeda and Juan Cantú’s “The Wiz.” There are great ideas in Castañeda’s adaptation to make the story relevant — the Scarecrow has Asperger’s, the Tin Man is gay. Most important, the tornado is now Hurricane Maria.



In the stirring opening, the islanders plead for help – “We are one,” they sing in Spanish. “We are part of your country.” But thankfully, “El Wiz” isn’t a political screed. Rather, it’s an exuberant celebration of heritage and resilience.


$10-$20 suggested donation. Please also bring food or wine to share.
