The Wizard of Oz at the London Palladium

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.

  2. DarthxErik says:

    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!

  3. isboredenough says:

    They should have borrowed costumes from wicked!

  4. tasha002 says:

    It only reminds me of wicked…..

  5. canonregular says:

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

  6. Michelle Zheng says:

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

  17. BagOfSticksFork says:

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

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. liamblackere says:

    this was a fantastic production!

  21. 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.

  22. Gawjus Chica says:
