gam0090sh-wizard6ozBroadway World’s 10th Anniversary! The Legacy & Lore Of THE WIZARD OF OZ  Time is on our side – today is actually the 111th anniversary of the original stage production of THE WIZARD OF OZ.  Pop culture references to THE WIZARD OF OZ range from TITANIC to AVATAR to FIELD OF DREAMS, THE MATRIX, Tom & Jerry, The Muppets, Disney’s THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME and many more. It’s certainly, well… popular (to cite a standout song from WICKED)!  The Academy Award-winning “Over The Rainbow” has been performed by countless artists over the years – famous iterations include Frank Sinatra, Doris Day, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand, Sarah Vaughan, Patti LaBelle, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ray Charles, Harry Nilsson, Kylie Minogue; plus, Broadway baby Matthew Morrison on GLEE and even movie legends Jimmy Stewart and Paul Newman!
