'Is there anything new or interesting left in The Wizard of Oz? This production answers with a resounding 'Yas, queen'. No matter how many times you’ve seen The Wizard of Oz, you’ve never seen it like this: a multimedia, Brechtian drag show featuring a largely genderfluid cast, with an unapologetically timely message. Thanks to Zi Alikhan’s brilliant direction...you start to wonder if The Wizard of Oz was written specifically for (and about) 2023 America.'-Katherine Varga, Roc City Magazine.
