Presented by Northrop Dance in collaboration with Bedlam Theatre and Intermedia Arts.
Featuring choreography by New York City-based Nicholas Leichter and a commissioned score by infamous club performer Monstah Black with added musical selections, THE WHIZ: MONEYAPOLIS is a full-spectrum original theatrical extravaganza of song and dance inspired by the movie musical, The Wiz. Delivering a little taste of everything including funk, postmodern, cabaret, hip-hop, drag, house, and psychedelic, Nicholas Leichter Dance traverses a landscape filled with hopes, dream, fears, and home.
Local artists will feature several surprises during the performances including Shannon Blowtorch, Cee Cee Russell, Kenna-Camera Cottman, Leah Nelson, Mette Towley, Jose Bueno, Elly Hollenhorst, Bailey Anderson, Mad King Thomas, Jeffry Lusiak, and The Real Hauswives of Hennepin County!
Get there early, one hour before each show, because Club OZ will be open for pre-show SOCIALizin’ in the Intermedia Arts lobby. Come early and stay late for sparkly refreshments, special guests, and a good witch remix spun LIVE by BLOWTORCH!
