TVXQ, SHINee, EXO, f(x) to star in hologram musical ‘School OZ’ SM Entertainment said it would launch a hologram musical “School OZ” at Seoul’s SMTOWN THEATRE on Jan. 14, featuring its celebrated stars. TVXQ’s Changmin plays a mysterious perfectionist called Oscar, SHINee’s Key will take up the role of a suave man named David. Among other cast members, f(x)’s Luna plays a witch, EXO’s Suho and Xiumin are assigned as an elf and his loyal sidekick.
Red Velvet’s Seulgi joins the cast as a naive Dorothy, whose disappearance steers the musical’s plot in an important way.
Wicked producer Marc Platt gives an update on progress and that 2016 release date “2016 is the goal, but I don’t know whether we’ll make that goal or not. We will make the movie, but like I said, the bar is really high. We’re going to scrutinise our work on the screenplay and our prep on the movie, and when we feel like it’s ready, okay. We’re not going to shoot a release date is what I’m saying. It’s in the works, it’s not in a rush. It took 27 years to make Into the Woods into a film from its original stage production, and 30 years with Les Mis. Some things take time for a reason. Patience, as ever, is a virtue.”
