In order to bring attention to local productions of merit at theaters that are not on the Cleveland Critics Circle’s approved list, members of the Circle who attend a community or educational theater production that is perceived as of high quality will have the option of listing that production on the CCC blogsite. This review falls into that category.
As in all Near West Theater productions, The Wiz is a family friendly theater outing that the entire clan will enjoy. You will marvel at the youth of the actors on stage and the powerful beyond-their-years performance that they give. This is a great “first time” show to see as well as an inspiration to younger family members as to what can be achieved with hard work and plenty of rehearsal.To see a full review of this show, read Mark Horning's blog.
