Music Tonight: Sunday, Nov. 27


It’s your last chance to head off to see the Wizard. Which wizard? Why the wonderful Wizard of Oz. I once read that L. Frank Baum’s masterpiece is unique among fantasy works because while there are plenty of women in positions of power, (including some rather famous witches named for the cardinal directions), there is no patriarchal figure, the titular wizard himself being a conman. This is likely due to the influence of his mother-in-law, the feminist author and activist Matilda Joslyn Gage. Anyway, food for thought if you choose to attend either the matinee (2 p.m.) or evening showing (7 p.m.) of the musical at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts. ($19-$42, $17 for children 12 and under).
