When Dorothy wakes up in a strange land filled with witches and wizards, and munchkins and monkeys, she's charmed but desperate to return home. She sets off on a quest to ask the Wizard for help and along the way befriends a scarecrow without a brain, a tin man without a heart, and a cowardly lion. Journey down the yellow brick road while humming along to memorable songs from the Oscar-nominated film, including "Over the Rainbow," "We're Off to See the Wizard," and "If I Only Had a Brain."

Disappointing, Cliched, Insipid, Slow, Dated

See it if you want to see a live production of the Wizard of Oz or if you want to be able to say "I saw her when..." (regarding the lead)

Don't see it if you love Wicked - once you've seen Wicked, the Wizard of Oz doesn't really offer you much...
