He won a 1975 Tony Award for his direction of the hit musical, The Wiz, which received a total of seven Tonys including Best Musical. In an interview for Dance Magazine in 2010, Geoffrey Holder said, “I create for that innocent little boy in the balcony who has come to the theater for the first time. He wants to see magic, so I want to give him magic. He sees things that his father couldn’t see.”
