“Another kind of spirit came from visionary Choreographer Camille A. Brown...In her first Muny work, she has created a stunning panoply of dances: a unique “Tornado Ballet,” a flashy quartet who fill in as the Yellow Brick Road, and a fun “Emerald City House Party” among them. Zane Mark wrote additional dance music. The vigorous dance troupe features a number of Muny rookies but well-versed in Brown’s ingenious choreography, and they captivate every moment."
