Looks like my wish was granted. The Wiz is going to be NBC's next live musical production! It is set to air in December. But wait it gets better. Along with the TV version, a revised live stage production, set for Broadway, is also in the works. And, the production team is partnering with Cirque Du Soliel. Joy and rapture!
