Virginia Koste's new Oz play borrows from the characters and incidents from a dozen Oz books,Shaggy Man, Queen Jinjur, Professor Wogglebug, Johnny Dooit, et al. It's a jokey, jubilant journey through the American dream of Oz. It recreates the cheerful, vaudeville-and-magic brand of fantasy with which Frank Baum charmed America's Great Plains from the Mississippi River to the Rockies. On the Road! takes place in the mind of a playwright. Dorothy and the other actors inhabit his/her mind. The characters they play come from Oz. The conflict is the playwright's struggle to let the story happen,to control or release the creative passion. It's the "child on a magical journey",a reminder that life is a journey, not a destination. Open stage.
