“Fresh…entertaining, fast-moving and fun [with] sass to spare…Sharon Scott, a veteran performer with a mammoth voice, plays three roles. When she opens the second act as wicked witch Evillene, the energy really starts to pop. Scott is hilarious…On the duet Be A Lion, [Whitney] Drake and [Sara] DelBeato send a stunning harmony into the night sky…When we meet the Wiz, the set by Scott Cooper really starts to come to delicious life.” -Stephanie Hayes, Tampa Bay Times
"Soul-stirring…a fun if lightly packed trip back to Oz has movie fans skipping down the Yellow Brick Road…played brilliantly with a fun twist by female actor Sara DelBeato…Sharon E. Scott, as expected, delivers a powerhouse performance…Darryl Reuben Hall as Uncle Henry and The Wizard is a force to be reckoned with…Also, big props to the sassy and spunky ensemble players." -Julie Garisto, Creative Loafing
