Back in January, I wrote a short piece about the off-Broadway debut of "The Wonderful Wizard of Song: The Music of Harold Arlen." The show, about the famed Buffalo-born composer of songs for "The Wizard of Oz" and dozens of other classics of the American songbook, featured Buffalo boy Marcus Goldhaber. And yesterday, in a not-entirely-unexpected development, Shea's Performing Arts Center announced that Goldhaber and company will bring the show to the 710 Main Theatre on April 26 and 27.
Tickets for the production go on sale Friday morning.
