‘The Wiz Live!’ REVIEW!


I can’t believe we’re saying this…NBC got it right. The Wiz Live! was spectacular. It succeeded on EVERY level. Every cast member killed it. Shanice Williams was a breakout star. Ne-Yo and David Alan Grier were vulnerable. Mary J. Blige was fantastic (as was Queen Latifa). Amber Riley got our attention. But what surprised us was Uzo Aduba, who blew us away. She might’ve stolen the show with her song. Those last ten minutes were pure gold. This can easily stand up against the original movie. Everyone should be proud of this. If you didn’t watch it live or read the flood of Tweets about it, go watch it over the weekend. The Wiz Live! is a triumph. It’s everything you wanted it to be.
