Dir. Katherine Fairfax Wright | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 101 min.
Inspired by Beyoncé’s “Lemonade” and spurred by not getting a role on NBC’s The Wiz Live!, American Idol and YouTube sensation Todrick Hall launches his most ambitious project yet: Straight Outta Oz, a full-scale, original musical remake of The Wizard of Oz, mixed with Hall’s life story and beliefs. He struggles to write songs about growing up gay and black in Texas, his difficult relationship with his mom, and the harsh realities of trying to make it in show business. With limited time and budget the odds are against him, but his passion and team of talented performers overcome all obstacles to bring his show to the stage.
