  The Wizard of Oz Reviews

Star Tribune - Highly Recommended

"...It all works seamlessly in Jeremy Sams' captivating production. Sams, who co-adapted the film with Lloyd Webber, has staged an eye-catching show that uses Jon Driscoll's vertigo-inducing video projections and Robert Jons' scenic and costume design to transport us to a chiaroscuro carnival of munchkins and flying monkeys, witches and a blustery wizard whose chicanery reveals the truth."

Twin Cities Daily Planet - Highly Recommended

"...This performance of The Wizard of Oz not only met but exceeded my every expectation of how to act this timeless classic out on stage. Only a few small changes were made that I noticed that deterred from the original screen play but it remained a powerful performance. Why change such an iconic musical? This show is appropriate for children to grandparents and what a wonderful way to spend an evening with family during the holiday season."

Twin Cities Pioneer Press - Highly Recommended

"...This energetic production fills a void as all-ages holiday-time entertainment that isn't "The Nutcracker," "A Christmas Carol" or something on a screen. And, judging from the smiles of several ruby-shoed little girls at the performance I attended, they appear to agree that it's satisfying fun."
