Get ready to ease on down the road, because the soulful rock musical “The Wiz” is returning to the New York stage. Based on L. Frank Baum’s classic “The Wizard Of Oz,” the production will be part of City Center’s Summer Encore Series.
Grammy Award winner and New York theater newcomer Ashanti stars as Dorothy.
“This is such a different genre than what I [normally] do in my career,” says Ashanti. “Just being able to soak up so much, you know, all the passion that’s here, all the stage presence, it’s a little different. So I’m learning, I’m a sponge.”
Yesterday, Ashanti attend the “There’s No Place Like Home” dog adoption day at New York City Center in New York City. Peep some more shots from the event below:
