"Wizard of Oz" - Review by Alan Bresloff

★★★★★When you head south (west from Indiana), to the second largest city in the state of Illinois, you are NOT in Aurora anymore! No, you are in the wonderful “land of Oz”, L.Frank Baum’s classic story with delightful music and lyrics by Harold Arlen and E.Y. Harburg. Director/choreographer Amber Mak does her magic again on the stage of The Paramount Theatre. The movie that is a classic (played at holiday time on many TV stations) transforms itself to a magical two and a half hours of entertainment that every family can enjoy. No matter your religious belief, race, ethnicity, financial situation, “The Wizard of Oz” will bring you back to your childhood and for those in their childhood, will create memories of love, friendship, and the ability to make others feel your love.
