Discover the untold story of the witches of Oz, with spellbinding songs, a powerful story and incredible visual spectacles. Best for age 7+.

A spellbinding journey to Oz

Wicked is the smash-hit musical that has been casting its magical spell over the West End for more than 14 years at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.

Ever wondered what happened before Dorothy embarked on her unforgettable journey along the Yellow Brick Road in The Wizard of Oz? Wicked, based on Gregory Maguire’s acclaimed novel, reveals the untold story of how the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good fulfilled their destinies.

Wicked follows the unlikely friendship between Shiz University’s most popular student, Glinda, and the ostracised girl with emerald green skin, Elphaba. Over the course of this inspiring musical about friendship, morality and identity, the two students begin an extraordinary adventure that changes the course of history forever.

This visually stunning musical is backed by an unforgettable score, including modern musical theatre staples such as "Defying Gravity" and "The Wizard and I".

What is Wicked the musical about?

The story serves as a prequel to The Wizard of Oz that explores the origins of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good Witch. Starting years before Dorothy sets foot on the yellow brick road, the story opens at Shiz University when Elphaba and Glinda are assigned as roommates on their first day.

Although the pair couldn't be more different at first glance, they soon strike up a friendship, which is tested by the arrival of the handsome Fiyero and their opposing views on politics and authority. When Elphaba's talent for magic takes her all the way to the Emerald City and a meeting with the Wizard, Glinda joins her. But they soon discover that the Wizard is not all he seems, with consequences that leave Elphaba branded wicked throughout the whole of Oz.

Tickets FAQ

Ticket prices typically start around £27 and can go up to £200 depending on dates and availability.
The most expensive tickets can be close to £200 and are located in the centre of the Stalls, Rows F - H, Seats 22-27.

For the price, you get what one theatregoer seated in H26 described as the "best view I've ever had for a show." From these seats you can see the entire stage and ensemble while still be close enough to make eye contact with the stars. You will feel fully immersed in this spectacular production.
Cheap Wicked tickets in London can be secured by checking availability in advance - around 4 to 6 weeks - and comparing views from across the auditorium when booking on SeatPlan. 

The Apollo Victoria Theatre is very large, so cheaper seats at the sides and rear of the Stalls offer a more detailed view than at the rear of the Circle. Seats such as ZD36 are very good value for money, and SeatPlan reviewers confirm that “you can see the entire stage brilliantly” even this far back. Other seats at the sides such as L4 are a good value option if you want to be close to the stage, with just a few restrictions from the angle.
