This winter, NBC will air a live version of “The Wiz,” and they’ve got some big stars on the bill. “The Wiz Live!” (adaptation of the 1975 Broadway hit) is being produced by the same team that created NBC’s live stagings of “Peter Pan” and “The Sound of Music”. Latifah will portray the Wiz herself, while Blige will play Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West. Stephanie Mills, who played Dorothy in the original Broadway production, will take on the role of Aunt Em. Also, NBC is currently searching for a new face to play Dorothy, and is holding an open casting call to fill the role.
“The Wiz Live!” will air 12/3/15.
