We’ve been catching sneak peaks all month long of the costumes for The Wiz Live! and with full cast photos finally being released this week, we see they are nothing short of amazing! Starring Uzo Aduba, Mary J. Blidge, Queen Latifah, Common and newcomer Shanice Williams, it’s clear NBC’s one-night live revamp of the 1978 classic is sure to be wig-snatching.

Five-time Tony nominated Costume designer Paul Tazewell truly outdid himself with these amazingly crafted designs which gives a modern twist on the ageless tale.


“We’re creating a fantasy land that also is inspired by some of the imagery you’d see today,” Tazewell told PEOPLE magazine.”It’s the edgiest of high-fashion from now, but in the world of the Emerald City.”

Click through to see The Wiz Live! cast in their one-of-a-kind costumes and be sure to ease on down the road with Dorothy, Tin Man, Lion and our favorite pup Toto, December 3 on NBC.
