23 Public performance, The Wizard of Odds, Common Ground Theatre, Durham (8 pm). Buy tickets!
Almost all of us are familiar with The Wizard of Oz, a tale in which four travelers seek things they’ve had all along. In this spin on the concept, the wizard is a therapist visited by individuals looking for what’s missing in their lives. Maybe these characters already have what they’re seeking, maybe they don’t need it, or maybe something utterly unexpected will happen.
Based on audience suggestions, this performance is made up on the spot by the south’s longest-running improv theater as it begins its 34th season.
Special guest Deb Aronin joins company regulars Anoo Brod, director Greg Hohn, Bart Hubbard, Juliet Kaplan, Steve Scott, and Steven Warnock in the cast.
