Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is transported to another world - a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force. Epic, romantic and fantastical, Emerald City is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.
When a tornado transports Dorothy Gale from Lucas, Kan., to the faraway land of Oz, her arrival sets in motion a prophecy about a disastrous event known as The Beast Forever and strikes fear into the land's almighty ruler, the Wizard. On her quest to meet the Wizard in Emerald City, Dorothy encounters witches, an amnesiac soldier, a sheltered little boy and many more mysterious beings who will ultimately shape the future of Oz and Dorothy's place in it.

Wanted it to Be Great ... But
10 January 2017 | by ron-46458 (Cincinnati) – See all my reviews
Loved the premise and mash-up of original OZ with steampunk/fantasy. Sets are terrific and ideas are ambitious. Dark, gritty, and inventive. But also flat dialogue, average acting, and a storyline that needs a huge re-write. D'Onofrio can be a compelling actor, but he's coasting in this role. The city seems to be the central theme, so I get that everything doesn't center on Dorothy. Unfortunately her only believable impulse is to help others. The rest of her character is limp.
After the two-hour debut, I imagined the acting wouldn't improve and the story line, regardless of invention, would not hang together. Too much else to watch that is better outta the gate.
