A twelve-year-old murderess, men missing vital organs wandering the countryside with said woman in tow, scores of little people so overjoyed by the death of a despot that they take to the streets singing, and a slew of hallucinogen induced images come together in what many feel is the greatest childrens story ever told. Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and a Cowardly Lion are off to see the wonderful Wizard of Oz in a new stage production of the beloved, if a little scary story. Honestly, traveling somewhere over a rainbow only to find a sadistic wizard who tricks an impressionable young girl into murdering his competition - before letting her know she could have left any time she wanted, sans homicide and battles with winged primates - seems more sadistic than child-friendly.
