Thursday August 21, 2008 - 11:28:00 AM

Belasco Theatre Company’s The Wiz, with many of the cast members from the 2000 production, directed by founder Edward Belasco (coming out of retirement) and produced by Dr. Samuel Lewis, goes into its final performances 7:30 tonight and tomorrow night at the Malonga Casquelourd Arts Center (formerly Alice Arts), 1428 Alice St., downtown Oakland. Tickets: (925) 980-0778. (Last week’s review of this exemplary community theater show for families confused it in headline and contact info with a shorter-run Berkeley production—ah, late summer staff vacations!)
