OZ: a new musical

music and lyrics by Michael Raabe
book by Eric Davis

Preempted from our 19/20 season, this much-anticipated world-premiere musical by freeFall’s artistic director and music director finally takes its turn as we close our 22/23 season. This original musical explores the genius of L. Frank Baum and his complicated relationship with his most famous creation, the Land of Oz. This is the story of a dreamer at the dawn of a new age who reinvented the fairy tale in a distinctly American way, painting an idealized and magical vision of a world where witches might be good, and what you’re seeking is already inside you.
