The Yellow Brick Road - Off Broadway Musical

The Yellow Brick Road played Off Broadway at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (July 19 - August 19, 2011) Produced by TheatreworksUSA. Book by Mando Alvarado & Tommy Newman Music and Lyrics by Jaime Lozano & Tommy Newman With Virginia Cavaliere - Ryan Duncan - Cedric Leiba, Jr - Lexi Rhoades - Natalie Toro - Frank Viveros - Joshua Cruz - Veronica Reyes Choreographed by Devanad Janki & Robert Tatad Directed by Devanad Janki Excelente "Wizard" The New York Post, July 30, 2011 Imagine "The Wizard of Oz" spiked with a little salsa and merengue. Que divertido! You've pretty much summed up "The Yellow Brick Road," a fun new riff on L. Frank Baum's classic. This Isn't Kansas: It's a Quinceañera That Sets the Scene The New York Times, July 29, 2011 This isn't your grandparents' "Wizard of Oz." Or your parents' "Wiz." Or your older sister's "Wicked." "The Yellow Brick Road," the 2011 entry in Theatreworks USA's dependably diverting free summer series for young audiences, is a high-spirited mix of all these shows, particularly "The Wiz." The director, Devanand Janki, has packed more than a dozen songs and several winning performances into this Latino-flavored riff on the L. Frank Baum classic at the Lucille Lortel Theater. No time to click heels in this 65-minute telling: these shoes are made for dancing. Theatreworks USA puts a spicy new twist on The Wizard of Oz in this summer's free production. Time Out New York Kids, July 28, 2011 In this muy caliente weather, what New Yorker wouldn't want to be whisked away to a magical land for an hour? Luckily, Theatreworks USA is offering free family vacations to Oz—with a spicy modern twist.
