This weekend March 1st-3rd, 2019
Muse, Meek Mill
and Deryl Dodd @Armadillo Place
This last weekend in February has enough entertainment for everybody; single with friends or family affairs.
Lets start with The Society of Performing Arts bringing us The Wizard of Oz to Jones Hall for the Performing Arts.
The Wizard of Oz was first turned into a musical extravaganza by Baum himself. It was a loose adaptation of his 1900 novel (there is no Wicked Witch or Toto, and there are some new characters), it first played in Chicago in 1902 and was a success on Broadway the following year. It then toured for seven years. The 1939 film adaptation was a much closer resemblance to the narrative of Baum's original novel than most previous versions. It was a strong success, won the Academy Awards for best song and best score and as we all know became a frequent annual broadcast on television. (See Weekend Saturdays click here)
