    First time seeing Wicked; the show was absolutely beautiful and everything I imagined it to be. Glinda (Suzie Mathers) played the role perfectly, I couldn't fault her adaptation of the character and she will forever be my favourite Glinda. Elphaba (Willemijn Verkaik) was also exceptional, the best vocal performance from an Elphaba I've seen; I did find her acting stiff at times but I am sure this is not usually the case and could just have been an off night (in which case, I have even more respect for her as it was still unbelievable). Apart from the leads, I found that I couldn't take my eyes off the ensemble, and the Wizard (Mark Curry) completely stole the show for me with his larger than life personality. The set design is unlike any I've ever seen, and adds to the magic you are witnessing on stage. My favourite part of the whole show would have to be when the witches enter the emerald city; the Ozian's COSTUMES are a delicious mix of fashionable and comical. A lighthearted and endearing show, I would advise everyone to indulge in a bit of Wicked at least once in their lives.

    Paid for partially blocked view, so we knew what we were in for. The side of the stage closest to us was partially blocked in view; this did not spoil the magic and for the price of £29, having seats so close to the front and so close to the actors was completely worth the partial covering of some (but not many to be honest) of the occurrences on stage.

    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.

    Absolutely brilliant show, I went with school and not everyone in the party enjoys musical theater as much as myself but I didn't hear one bad review! Would highly recommend! The only problem is one that myself and fellow theatergoers have sadly had to experience too many times is the lack of theater etiquette in the audience; which sadly interrupts the enjoyment of the show for the people around them. However, that aside, this is a fabulous show and I enjoyed it thoroughly!

    Fabulous seat, would highly recommend! Very comfortable throughout the whole show, saw the whole stage, which was a pleasant surprise as I'm not very tall so don't always see all the action; although I suspect it would've been harder with a taller person in front of me! Very quick and easy access to the loos, bar and merchandise stall as well. Would 100% recommend this seat and area of the stalls.

    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!

WICKED SEATING PLAN
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.

STORY
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!
SUITABLE FOR
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+
