    I saw one of the last shows with Willemijn Verkaik, Oliver Savile and Suzie Mathers. I really liked this cast. Willemijn is one hell of an Elphaba (but she must be used to it after all those years) and I always enjoy seeing her on stage. Oliver Savile is one charming Fiyero I must say and his singing and dancing skills are amazing. Suzie Mathers' Glinda is just as this character has to be: Playful and charming but also with something deeper behind the facade which she does not want to show to everyone.

    I could see most things going on on stage from this seat. Only those parts when they were at the very back of the stage were obscured by a piece of set directly in front of it. Sometimes the actors were standing very close and I loved seeing every detail of their facial expressions. I would recommend this seat especially to Fiyero fans since he is standing there a lot. Even though the seat is in front of a speaker it is never really too loud. You should be aware though, that this seat is quite far to the right side of the theatre and if you are seeing Wicked for the first time I would choose a slightly more central position and pay a bit more for it (the effects you're seeing are incredible, so for first-timers: Go for a central seat even though the extra money might hurt. It's worth it!)

    Apart from watching the song "Defying Gravity" performed a couple of times on the hit TV series Glee, I knew nothing of this show or the fact that it was where this song came from. So when I came to watch this show live and in person it amazed me as to how emotionally involved I became with the characters in the first half. What an amazing story and as you would expect for a West End production an incredible cast who are all worthy of their role. Stand outs for me personally were Anita Dobson (Angie from Eastenders) & Rachel Tucker (unknown to me but went for the role of Nancy in BBC's "I'd Do Anything") she received a standing ovation at the end led by myself. You know when you've been sitting in a theatre for a while and you're waiting for the interval or the end to come? You know. You've been there before. NOT HERE! From start to finish this is just an epic stage production. If your thinking of going to see it. Do it. You will not regret it.

    What a great seat! Extra leg room being on the end of the row. Somewhere to put your extra drink if you have one and a fantastic view of the show (Wicked) where you get to experience all of the facial expressions of the cast and don't miss anything from what I could see. Recommended highly. Would buy again.

    I love this show. It was the first musical I ever saw on the West End, and this trip marked my 4th time seeing it. Over the years I have seen 3 different casts (all of which have been great). I think Wicked is a great introduction to the West End if you haven't been before. It has great sets, phenomenal songs and a really strong story. At this performance, I saw Emma Hatton play Elphaba. I have to say, I have followed her 'journey' as Elphaba since she was a cover, and at first I didn't really rate her, but she has completely come into her own. Her performance of 'No Good Deed' was one of my favourites, and she has such a unique tone to her voice. She was great. Carina Gillespie was playing Galinda - she is the cover for this role. I really liked her voice, but overall she didn't blow me away in the role. I don't have anything bad to say about the show at all, I love all the amendments they've made to the show since I last saw it (5 years ago). I would (and have) recommended it to everyone. Definitely one of my favourites.

    We were a lot closer to the stage than this photo shows. The view was great, it was a full view of the stage with no restrictions/cut offs at all (despite being slightly to the side). The seats were really reasonably priced - if anything I think we should have paid more for the view but I'm not complaining!

    One of my favourite shows in the West End. I've been a huge fan of this show since it first opened on Broadway so for it to come to London was such a relief for me. I have seen nearly every cast this show has offered and I have enjoyed seeing how each one makes the story its own. The themes of friendship and acceptance are so universal so I think in that respect the show is for all, but it is quirky and I think that is what divides people. The sets are exquisite and truly make Oz come to life. The costumes and props and choreography are amazing and so detailed. The songs are catchy and big and bold when you need them, with softer more understated songs at the right times in the show! I'm biased because I love this show but I do think people should give it a go!

    So this seat was bought through Day Seating. For Wicked this means a super early start. I think for this ticket we where first in the queue at 6am but this was for my friends birthday. I would say though though for Wicked it is totally worth it!!! To be so close to the action is amazing and this seat is right in the middle. The view is not perfect by any means and its hard to see the back of the stage but I think that is a minor detail to be so close to the stage! I would say that if you are seeing the show for the first time - sit further back to enjoy the whole experience - sitting front row means you have to pick where to focus your attention. The seats are really comfortable and the legroom is vast as there in no one in front of you! A great seat but be warned you'll need to get there early!

The front section of the circle gives a good overall view of the dazzling action but you can't beat the central stalls for feeling a real part of the magic.

Since opening in the West End in 2006 Wicked has proven incredibly popular with audiences and this shows no sign of wavering with the show becoming the recipient of the Olivier Audience Award at the 2015 ceremony.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s novel Wicked: The life and times of the wicked witch of the west the show tells the untold story of the witches of OZ and provides a different perspective on the famously most wicked of witches. The story, which shows that PR and media representations have a lot to answer for, is adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman.

After initially disliking each other intensely blonde and popular Glinda and green outcast Elphaba two sorcery students at the prestigious Shiz university form an unlikely friendship however this friendship is tested to the limit after an encounter with the Wizard of Oz where the girls are asked to stick to their principles with their decisions taking them on very different paths; ultimately to one being labelled as good and the other as wicked.

The show boasts a score by Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz. Among the musical’s most memorable songs are “Popular”, “For Good” and of course stand out anthem “Defying Gravity” in which Elphaba, thanks to a touch of theatrical magic, really does!

The first half begins before the story of The Wizard of OZ while the second half runs parallel to it. Fans of original will enjoy the many references to it and the way the story seeks to explain elements of the world of the story.

Stunning sets and costumes, including a giant dragon which looms over the auditorium, make this show a feast for the eyes while the heartwarming story of female friendship and catchy score make this a dazzling spectacular and an unforgettable experience.

The original Broadway production starred Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth as the witches of OZ and the strong female roles continue to attract the crème de la crème of musical theatre talent.

With its 10th anniversary at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in 2016, an extra special cast will return for the momentous celebration, from the 5th September 2016. Rachel Tucker will return to reprise her starring role of Elphaba, following a popular stint in the Broadway production, as well as being joined by Suzie Mathers from the Australian company as Glinda, while Anita Dobson takes the role of Madame Morrible. The much loved Oliver Savile will continue his role as Fiyero.

Prepare to be spellbound!
Wicked is a modern classic and a great show for the whole family. Fans of The Wizard of Oz will love the many references but the story can also be enjoyed without prior knowledge.

Age Recommendations: Recommended for children 8+
