'The Wiz Live' Producers Talk Broadway Plans, Cast Involvement

The producers of The Wiz Live are talking about their plans to bring the show to Broadway next year and if any cast members will be involved.

The telecast was the best-reviewed live musical that NBC has done so far and it brought in 11.5 million viewers, up a significant amount from last year’s Peter Pan Live.

“Right now the plan is to have The Wiz on Broadway a year from now in partnership with Cirque. The entire cast of The Wiz Live knows about the Broadway plans but we didn’t make it a prerequisite when casting them. But over the past couple of weeks, a lot of members of the cast have been sniffing around doing it in the theater,” Neil Meron told THR.

“We’d love for [Shanice Williams] to be on Broadway in The Wiz but that’s to be worked out,” Craig Zadan added.

“Every person that was in the show last night has been invited to come to Broadway. It’s a matter of if they want to and how much time they can give us,” they continued. “And if we can work out a pay scale. Broadway pays differently than doing film, TV and concerts.”
