Cuddle up with screen-to-stage adaptation; some, notably Deidre Atkinson’s Glinda, even channel on-screen counterparts’ mannerisms. Refreshingly authentic: Dopey scarecrow (Ryan Stathos), brimful-hearted Tinman (John Ellingson), Merritt Glover’s feisty malevolent witch with severe case of bandy-legged broom-crotch. Costumes, makeup, and sound - enchanted. Oddities: Natalie Hovee’s Dorothy’s Toto fixation; Munchkins’ ‘Shroomland residence.
