Tamron Hall is joined by the cast of the current Broadway tour of “The Wiz” for her Halloween episode, dressing up as the iconic Dorothy.
“This show captures the essence of the story of ‘The Wizard of Oz,’” R&B singer and Broadway vet Cox tells Hall in the segment. “I think every single person in this show brings their spirit and energy to the roles that make it very, very special… We all share the same fears the same insecurities, and in each show, we’re able to give some light and some joy to every single audience telling this story.”
Per the Grio, the segment also features a surprise message from Wayne Brady, who will join the company of “The Wiz” for a few stops on tour and on Broadway. “I want to send love to my ‘Wiz’ family; you guys are killing it on tour right now,” he gushed in the video, sharing his excitement for when he eventually joins. “I can’t wait to see the show; I can’t wait to be in the show; and I can’t wait to put on that costume,” he added.
In true Tamron Hall fashion, she spared no effort to create a stunning costume. Collaborating with a team of talented makeup artists and costume designers, Hall’s transformation into Dorothy was nothing short of spectacular. From the famous blue gingham dress to the iconic ruby slippers, every detail was meticulously crafted. The Wiz, a reimagined version of The Wizard of Oz with an all-African-American cast, has left an indelible mark on the world of theater. The musical’s vibrant energy, catchy songs, and powerful storytelling have made it a beloved classic.
By embodying Dorothy, Tamron Hall paid tribute to the show’s enduring legacy and honored the groundbreaking work of its creators.
