Todrick Hall just changed my life. After a quick 15 minute phone interview with this man I had tears in my eyes, my heart was full of love and I finished with, “I have the greatest job in the world.”

Todrick Hall was inspired to create Straight Outta Oz because of the negativity in the world. “Instead of going home and writing about it on Facebook, and people would think I was the bitter one, I decided to write this album” said Todrick. He is the writer, director, choreographer and stars in his own musical Straight Outta Oz.

When Todrick realized “My followers don’t know a lot about me”, he admitted, this was an opportunity for his fans to see him come from a truly vulnerable place. He has combined his favorite childhood story The Wizard of Oz and his own personal tale to help people understand “I’m not a victim” he says.

When asked to describe this musical in one word he immediately responded with “Home”.

Hall is a caring person that wants to help and inspire people through his art.

These triple threat performers will astound you with their talent and touch you with this authentic, warm-hearted story Straight Outta Oz. I highly recommend you go see this production not because I love musical theatre so much, but because of the rawness and truth that comes with it.

June 4, 6:30pm. Enmore Theatre, 118-132 Enmore Rd, Sydney. $58.25+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.wearenice.com.au
