The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium

The Wizard of OzAndrew Lloyd Webber’s new production of The Wizard of Oz starring Over The Rainbow winner Danielle Hope as Dorothy, Michael Crawford and Hannah Waddingham.

The show will start performances on 7 February 2011 at the London Palladium (CLICK HERE TO BOOK TICKETS).

Lord Webber is producing the show, following his search for a Dorothy in BBC One’s Over The Rainbow. His company owns the London Palladium alongside a number of theatres in London including the Adelphi, where his follow-up to The Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies, is currently playing.

The first stage version of L Frank Baum’s classic book was in 1902 starring Anna Laughlin. The 1939 MGM film starring Judy Garland is the most famous version of the show, and was adapted into a stage musical in 1945 by Frank Gabrielson for the St. Louis Municipal Opera. In 1987 the RSC produced a new stage musical version which was much closer to the film, and starred Imelda Staunton as Dorothy, who was nominated for an Olivier award for Outstanding Performance of the Year by an Actress in a Musical.

Andrew Lloyd Webber will look to add some new songs to the stage show: “The film worked fantastically but we need some new songs for the stage show”, said Lloyd Webber.

    I really dislike Glinda’s “look.” The dress is pretty but I hate her headdress/face glitter… if they’re going to go for Wizard of Oz they should’ve done an outfit that was big and light pink!

  8. isboredenough says:

    They should have borrowed costumes from wicked!

  9. tasha002 says:

    It only reminds me of wicked…..

  10. canonregular says:

    They ruin it with the rough American accents. It’s supposed to have in many places a cheerful English air.

    the emerald city outfits remind me of the capitol outfits in hunger games!!! 😀

  22. BagOfSticksFork says:

    yeah…i just don’t think anything compares =)

  23. papaknowsbest16 says:

    My thoughts exactly. Though I will say that there’s nothing like the excitement in the room at a high school production when the girl playing the witch rides the bike across the stage.

  24. BagOfSticksFork says:

    yeah. i love wizard of oz the film but the musical is a bit too….i dont know i just prefer the film

  25. liamblackere says:

    this was a fantastic production!

  26. papaknowsbest16 says:

    This production doesn’t help by using the ideas from Wicked as a pattern in an effort to cash in on it. It’s too bad that they would rather make a version for the moment than put in the effort to do something really great.

  27. Gawjus Chica says:

    Really when did u leave??? And what year r u in

  28. ohtoy1987 says:

    A taste of The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium – one of many events
    detailed on our Events page. Have you seen the Wizard of Ozz on stage ?
    What did you think of it ?

  31. shoobyloo says:

    This show really is FANTASTIC!!!!! The effort they have have put in!!!!!!!!

  32. BagOfSticksFork says:

    Wicked kinda ruined this show for me. Now I only think of Nessa Elphie and Galinda

  33. HowBrightWeShineDude says:

    this looks like a brilliant showi love hannah!!!! one small complaint
    though :/ the ensemble costumes aren’t as elaborate as their wicked
    counterparts… (please no rants, just stating an opinion and yes, i know
    they’re two different interpretations of oz, i’m just saying compared to
    other musicals, they just dont meet the standard)

  34. lullabell86 says:

    Me and my hubby went to watch this show on Thursday and really really
    enjoyed it. Fantastic set and the wicked witch is hilarious. We had seats
    in the royal circle, the best seats I’ve ever sat in, just perfect for
    viewing the stage. I could not recommend it more:)

  35. juzzylime94 . says:

    @Cristella369 OMG i used to go that school. your so lucky, i never went

  36. Gawjus Chica says:

    I watched it today with my school chestnuts primary school I was sitting in
    the upper circle right in the middle

  37. TheAllthatjazzgal says:

    if this show was a guy i world so marry it 😉

  38. zero chris says:

    seen it tonight WOW LOVED IT…..

  39. alex garrick says:

    i thought dave was playing toto

  40. itbejess says:

    @MusicalsFan15 But the costumes are more similar to the Wicked costumes
    than to the costumes in the film or any other production of The Wizard of
    OZ, especially the Witches costumes. If they’re gonna take inspiration for
    costumes it should be from previous versions of this story not its side

    personaly i think Sophie would have done a better Job.
