The Wiz musical - NBC

 

“Don’t nobody bring me…no bad news!”

On Monday, NBC announced their next live production will be an update of the hit Broadway musical, “The Wiz.”

The network has entered into a partnership with Cirque du Soleil to co-produce the live event scheduled to air on Thursday, December 3.

From there, “The Wiz” will become a Broadway revival for the 2016-17 season.

Although “The Wiz” scared the bejeebus out of me as a kid…I’m looking forward to this.
