Uzo Aduba and Amber Riley join ‘The Wiz Live’
Sorry, no Beyonce for you. NBC announced that Orange Is The New Black star Uzo Aduba and Glee star Amber Riley are joining The Wiz Live as the good witches.
Aduba will play Glinda, the Good Witch of the South, And Riley will play Addaperle, the Good Witch of the North.
I'm beyond grateful and excited to join this incredible company of artists as Glinda, The Good Witch in #TheWizLive and to tell this story!
