Wizard of Oz – THE BEYOND BROADWAY EXPERIENCE has come to King’s Theatre, Edinburgh. This fantastic adaptation, follows the huge success of The Beyond Broadway Experience in 2016 & 2017, the Wizard of Oz will have you dancing down the Yellow Brick Road all the way to the Emerald City with a twist.
The theatre was full packed with families, excited adults and giddy children waiting to join Dorothy on her adventures. This version of the musical draws heavily on the 1939 original and includes a few scenes from Kansans before Dorothy goes over the rainbow to Oz.
A 157 young cast will sweep you away to another world and will have you singing along to the songs; we left the theatre singing all the greatest hits with a smile on our faces. Watching the young children playing, singing and enjoying being on the stage makes the show even more special. The show is 2h30m (including a 20min interval) but goes by very quickly, the play is packed with extraordinary design and incredible cast.
Sarah Kerr who plays Dorothy is fantastic in her role – her voice will give you shivers, she gave a great acting performance, well supported by her singing.
