Set decades after the events of The Wizard of Oz, this new work of musical theatre by Daniel Alexander Jones and Bobby Halvorson is based loosely upon L. Frank Baum's The Marvelous Land of Oz. It's "one part trunk-show and one part ritual of remembrance," directed by Will Davis for Salvage Vanguard Theater, and featuring performances by Cami Alys, Florinda Bryant, Wesley Bryant, Jacques Colimon, the Chronicle's own Robert Faires, Nitra Gutierrez, Heather Hanna, Daniel Alexander Jones, Jarrett King, Alexis Leah Scott, Carla Nickerson, and Robert Pierson.
