Somebody decided to make a new musical out of The Wizard of Oz using the original, long-running 1902 stage version as inspiration. I wouldn’t wish that chore on my worst enemy—“Hey, can you write a memorable song for Dorothy?”—but I am dying of perverse curiosity until this Sunday’s staged reading. And let’s be fair: The Wiz didn’t sound like a good idea at the time, either, but I could name “Ease on Down the Road” in three notes now (and so could you, Butch, so keep your wisecracks to yourself).
