NBC has partnered with Cirque du Soleil for an upcoming production of The Wiz that will serve as their next live musical special before heading to Broadway. “We love this yearly tradition and we’re more excited than ever to not only bring another Broadway musical to America’s living rooms, but also see it land on Broadway as well,” NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt said in a statement on Monday. Tony Award-winning director Kenny Leon will stage both the television production and Broadway revival in collaboration with Harvey Fierstein. According to Deadline, The Wiz will debut on NBC on December 3.
