- The show will feature choreography/contributions from Cirque du Soleil (presumably in the "flying monkeys" material).
- New book material will be added by Harvey Fierstein, who will co-direct with Kenny Leon.
- This will be the precusor to a Broadway revival of the show from the same creative team. Unclear if they're looking for the cast to continue, but I'd expect they'll be looking for at least a Dorothy who will transfer.
Casting suggestions are invited--you have to assume they look to either Fantasia or Jennifer Hudson as Dorothy and Audra as Glinda, but how about Donald Glover as either the Scarecrow or the Tin Man?
