Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.
"Merry Old Land of Oz" (The Wizard of Oz at Enlightened Theatrics)
Ulterior Motives: Enlightened Theatrics is making headline in Salem, Oregon for their production of the beloved musical The Wizard of Oz, which runs through August 28 only. The cool thing about this Oz is that its Dorothy is actually 16 years old, its Scarecrow is a woman, it has African-American actors playing Lion and Glinda, and the whole thing is backed by a 17-piece orchestra.
Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: These people are serving it to you, especially the Dorothy (Phoebe Jacobs) and Scarecrow (Cassi Q Kohl). I especially loved the big ending beginning at 4:47.
