Ashanti set to make her stage debut in ‘The Wiz’



NEW YORK – Ashanti is going down the Yellow Brick Road to Oz.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will make her stage debut this summer as Dorothy in a revival of “The Wiz,” the soul-tinged version of the classic L. Frank Baum story.

The musical will play June 12 through July 5 at New York City Center as part of its “Encores! Summer Stars” series. Opening night is June 18.

“The Wiz” has a book by William F. Brown and a score by Charlie Smalls.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.
