In the summer of 2013 at the Berkeley Playhouse, Vernon starred as The Wiz.  He got down and funky along with an electrifying and dynamic ensemble cast in the soulful modern retelling of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!  The Wiz, winner of 7 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.  The score by Charlie Smalls includes the beloved hits, "Ease on Down the Road," Brand New Day" and "Home" (which has been recently featured on both Fox's GLEE and ABC's SMASH.)  Above are some of the lively pictures from the show and below some of the reviews and interviews!
