The Wiz has been chosen as NBC’s next live musical presentation. The production will be executive produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron – but there’s a twist!
NBC will also team up with a new production partner – Cirque Du Soleil, whose new stage theatrical division will co-produce the live TV event on Thursday, December 3rd and then present it as a major Broadway revival for the 2016-17 season.
The Wiz will be directed by Tony-winner Kenny Leon with additional material by Harvey Fierstein.
