About the show

Originally opening on Broadway in 2003, legendary musical Wicked premiered in the UK in 2006, and continues to play to packed-out audiences at the West End’s Apollo Victoria Theatre. Winning multiple WhatsOnStage and Olivier Award, the emerald extravaganza follows the untold story of the Witches of Oz.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s novel of the same name, as well as L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, the spectacular musical provides a whole new perspective on the infamous Wicked Witch of the West. With themes of love, prejudice and magic, Wicked is the ultimate story of the strength of female friendship in the face of adversity.

Taking place in the hallowed halls of the University of Shiz, the story follows intensely blonde and popular Glinda and green outcast Elphaba; both students desperate to get on the sorcery course. After initial dislike, the pair form an unlikely friendship that is put to the test as love and principles are hung on the line.

Boasting a sensational score by Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz, who has penned successes including Godspell and Pippin, Wicked contains a hugely memorable score. Tunes include “The Wizard and I”, “Popular”, “For Good” and, of course, stand-out anthem “Defying Gravity” in which Elphaba, thanks to a touch of theatrical magic, really does!

Casting includes Laura Pick as Elphaba, Helen Woolf as Glinda, Alistair Brammer as Fiyero, Kim Ismay as Madame Morrible, Andy Hockley as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Simeon Truby as Doctor Dillamond, Nicholas McLean as Boq and Karina Gillespie as Nessarose, alongside a 30+ ensemble.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman, Wicked is directed by Joe Mantello (The Last Ship, Assassins), with set design by Eugene Lee, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and sound design by Tony Meola.

A feast for the eyes and senses, Wicked is the theatrical treat that celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2016 and continues to wow London audiences. Originally starring Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth as the Witches of Oz, the strong female roles continue to attract the best of musical theatre talent. Prepare to be spellbound with this stunning musical!
