Pay Attention to what's behind the curtain

Arizona Broadway Theatre’s (ABT) production of The Wizard of Oz comes to life with a state-of-the-art LED wall provided by Absen, the world’s leading LED display brand, renowned for its high-quality products and global presence. Stunning larger-than-life images transfer you over the rainbow to the Land of Oz for a magical experience unlike any other.

While LED walls are usually seen in Broadway productions and national musical tours, the tech now makes its way to ABT, making it one of the first theatres in Arizona to have this type of technology installed in-house. Arizona Broadway Theatre is thrilled to reveal its LED wall for the first time during The Wizard of Oz, as it will emulate the true spirit of L. Frank Baum’s vision, creating eye-catching realistic and colorful images to tell the story of Dorothy and her friends.
