During all this month, dedicated to ‘The Wizard of Oz’ we have shared stories, emotions and songs. I think it’s a great musical, a beloved one for many reasons, because gives love and hope to many people. Even in the darkest times, you can travel to the colourful land of Oz and feel like home. It’s true that Dorothy, her story and all the wonderful characters on the film have been reinterpreted and used during all these years.
The land of Oz is full of stories, everybody can imagine a new world full of wonderful and not-so-wonderful things. It’s a story that inspires lot of people and brings art to the world. That’s why I see ‘The Wizard of Oz’ as a great film, with a huge legacy. It inspired Gregory Maguire to write his famous book ‘Wicked’, which was adapted on a musical too, one of the most important shows in history, an absolutely referent and a must see to all musical theatre fans.
