Todrick Hall has set out to crisscross the world once again.
After a four month stint as the lead in Kinky Boots on Broadway, Mr. Hall has returned full force to Straight Outta Oz, his autobiographical visual album turned stage show that tells the story of Todrick’s journey from a small Texas farm community to the bright lights of Los Angeles. Inspired in equal parts by Beyonce, Zootopia, and The Wizard of Oz, Todrick hits the stage as multiple characters to present a fiercely personal account of just what it takes to make it in today’s post-internet version of showbiz. With a soundtrack featuring cameos by Nicole Scherzinger, Jordin Sparks, Perez Hilton, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, RuPaul, and Amber Riley, Straight Outta Oz blends the excitement of a live stage show seamlessly with Todrick’s own personal brand of YouTube visual style to create a phenomenal multimedia experience.
For his second visit to the Jacksonville area, Todrick has chosen to touch down at the Thrasher-Horne Center. Denton Yockey, the center’s Executive Director, was present in the early years of Todrick’s career when he cast a young Toddy as the Doormat in a Ft. Worth, Texas production of Beauty & the Beast. Now a full-fledged star, he owes much of his fame to people like Denton who took a chance on him early in life. As a result, Denton was able to reach out to Todrick’s people and arrange a performance of his brand new, fully updated version of Straight Outta Oz especially for all the Toddlerz in Northeast Florida.
Void and the Thrasher-Horne Center have teamed up to give all you diehard Todrick fans options for killer experiences when the show returns later this month. First off, Todrick and his team are searching for the most devoted of fans to join his Street Team. You’ll work alongside the show helping to get the word out about this incredible production, and in return score some awesome insider perks. Keep your eyes on Todrick’s social feeds for more info on how to cop one of these coveted positions!
