The Cast of the The Wiz5

It seems as though we have been reporting on this NBC event for some time, but ladies (and gents that visit this site;D ) the time has come for the curtains to rise! Tomorrow evening the live version of the The Wiz will air with one powerful cast. NBC had to bring out the big guns because lets face it, the original film based on The Wizard of Oz had some very heavy hitters as well. The movie starred the late Michael Jackson as Scaregrow with the incomparable Diana Ross as Dorothy.
