In this 1978 urban update of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy (Diana Ross) is a young teacher living in Harlem who is swept away to Oz. Filled with hit songs and an all-star cast (Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow!), this re-imagining of the classic film has become a classic in its own right. After the film, find the set models from The Wiz in the Museum’s Behind the Screen exhibition and learn more about how the movie was made. Also check out the fun exhibition Jim Henson’s World.
