Michael Jackson and Diana Ross in The Wiz

A musical re-imaginging of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the context of urban culture, The Wiz was one of the first Broadway productions with an all-Black cast. The feature film adaptation featured a star-studded cast including Ross, Jackson, Richard Pryor and Nipsey Russell. Sidney Lumet directed the film, with music by Quincy Jones.
