Hope Mill Theatre’s acclaimed Black British retelling of ‘The Wiz’ is to be streamed online later this month.
The musical had to cancel 15 sold-out performances over Christmas due to Covid. The rights holders have now generously agreed to it being filmed and streamed for a strictly limited number of performances to UK-only audiences 22-30 January 2022.
