The Wizard of Oz New Orleans TicketsThe Wizard of Oz is a direct adaptation of the famous 1939 film that starred Judy Garland in the role of Dorothy Gale, a young woman who longs to escape from the confines of her mundane farm life before a strange storm whisks her away to the magical Land of Oz. The musical features most of the hit songs from the film that were composed by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg plus several original songs written exclusively for the musical. The Wizard of Oz continues the legendary collaboration between composer Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyricist Tim Rice, who also created The Likes of Us, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat in the 1960s and 1970s. The two musicians conceived of new material to make the story more appropriate for the theater. If you are in the area, then you can purchase The Wizard of Oz tickets at StubHub.
