Emerald City Preview Video Released Vincent D’Onofrio, who plays the Wizard in Emerald City, talks about the show’s premise, which he sees as a mirror of the modern day world (via Yahoo). “Our story is a reflection of society today, through the point of view of Dortohty, and our Dorothy is fantastic.” Dorothy is played by the talented Adria Arjona, who can’t wait for people to see the show in its final form, and their unique take on the characters. “I’m really excited for people to see the reality that every character has in this version. It’s very different from the original.” “I play the equivalent of the scarecrow” says Jackson-Cohen. “Dorothy saves him his life, so he will forever protect her. Our version of Oz, magic has been banned, and the wizard is controlling Oz through science, and so all the witches have been made redundant. Glenda runs an orphanage, West runs a brothel.”
