Erykah Badu is a visionary artist, but this week on Twitter, she's proving that her talents extend to musical casting. Perhaps reflecting on last month's broadcast of The Wiz Live!, Badu has shared three dream casts for The Wiz, each one better than the last. It's worth noting that Badu studied musical theatre and has created a one woman show that she performed earlier this year.
