ABOUT THE WIZ MINI-SERIES

“Ease on down the road” to the Library for its celebration of the 40th anniversary of the film version of The Wiz. Harlem and Oz intersect in this magical re-telling of L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, starring luminaries like Diana Ross and Michael Jackson. Catch one or both screenings, as well as several opportunities to hear and interact with Tony Walton, the production and costume designer for the film. Be sure to see a display of the Library’s holdings related to The Wiz and don’t miss the chance to see the movie on the big screen!
