The Wiz Live! may have single-handedly revived the live-musical — after NBC’s 2 previously mediocre offerings
Predecessors The Sound of Music Live! and Peter Pan Live! “were novelty items,” says Willa Paskin, “mediocre productions with a cozy kitsch appeal ripe for hate-tweeting that made Broadway productions, any Broadway production, look unfathomably accomplished.” The Wiz Live!, on the other hand, “was wonderful. Whatever its ratings out to be, this production was a huge win for quality—proof, which had not previously existed, that one can stage a live TV musical and have it be excellent, not just an event.” PLUS: David Alan Grier can act — he made his scenes more complex, NBC smartly offered an underdog to root for in newcomer Shanice Williams, The Wiz Live! needed a studio audience, The Wiz Live! was exuberant — it took chances and was even cocky, it was a hot mess of a production, The Wiz Live! was “the blackest thing on television” on Thursday in more ways than one, Williams “can belt out lyrics in that soul-stirring, lung-scorching way that suggests singing isn’t so much an art as an Olympic sport,” and The Wiz Live! topped Peter Pan Live! with 11.1 million viewers.
