THE WIZARD OF OZ The Musical
Literary adaptation of the story by L. Frank Baum
Lyman Frank Baum was born in Chittenango, the State of New York, in 1856, into a family of German origin. From early childhood he showed creativity and uncontrolled imagination, skills that he never stopped using, cultivating different interests and doing many different jobs. In 1899, he started a collaboration with the illustrator William Wallace Denslow with Father Goose: His Book, a collection of nursery rhymes and nonsense for children. In 1900, the two published The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz that had great success and became a best seller over the next two years. For the rest of his life he continued writing stories set in the world of Oz (fourteen until his death, plus three published posthumously) while also publishing, under a pseudonym, other works to create a prolific literary production. He died in Glandale, California, in 1919.
