Its very first performances took place at Baltimore's Morris A. Mechanic Theatre in 1974 and continued until 1975 when the show got a new cast and moved to the Majestic Theatre, on Broadway.
 
The Wiz's first production had a cast in which Dorothy was played by Renee Harris, the Scarecrow was played by Charles Valentino, the Tin Man was played by Ben Harney, the Cowardly Lion was played by Ken Prymus and the Queen of the Field Mice was played by Butterfly McQueen.

The first series of shows took place at the Majestic Theatre and then at The Broadway Theatre.
 
The original Broadway run of The Wiz took place for four long years and saw nearly seventeen hundred performances. The musical was massively popular and led to much fame for the musical and its cast. It was a breakthrough on Broadway itself as a musical featuring an all black cast and a large budget. It laid the foundations for latter musicals like Dreamgirls, Bubbling Brown Sugar and Duke Ellington's Sophisticated Ladies. In 1976, a US tour of the musical took place with a number of new actors. In 1978, a production was staged at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles where Ren Woods played Dorothy.

In 1996, a US National tour of this fabulous musical took place with Dorothy played by Tasha Scott. It continued on to 1997. 
 
In 2006, after many years, The Wiz was produced at San Diego's La Jolla Playhouse where it ran for several months and received favorable reviews. This production saw a revised version of music by the original composer, Harold Wheeler. It was directed by Des McAnuff.
 
The Wiz is an award winning musical whose original Broadway production alone has won seven Tony Awards and five Drama Desk Awards. For this reason, it is a musical to see live via The Wiz tickets for a time filled with fun and happiness.

Why prices are higher for the wiz new york than actual face value?
