The Wiz

For our version of The Wiz, we wanted to tell Dorothy's story of growing up through the pages of a blank coloring book. The steampunk element in the design comes from the Victorian lens through which we were examining the production. In this show, media and sound experimented with the use of the MYO armband to allow for live actor controlled cueing from the stage for the effects in the music, where timing is key.
