When Wicked first appeared on the West End stage over a decade ago, it opened to vicious reviews and was immediately dismissed by critics and given little hope of making it past the first six months.
But critics have been left to eat their words as over 100 international theatre awards later it is still going strong.
Today it is one of longest running shows in West End history, having been watched by over eight million theatregoers at London’s Apollo Theatre alone and 50 million people worldwide in 14 countries.

This powerful and wildly inventive story follows the fortunes of two young sorcery students, Glinda and Elphaba, via their blossoming friendship, mutual love interest and encounter with the corrupt Wizard of Oz, which leads to one of them being labelled ‘good’ and the other banished as ‘wicked’.
If you loved the Wizard of Oz, prepare to embark on a journey of discovery to a parallel universe of fantasy that puts a whole new slant on the characters and narrative on Dorothy’s adventure in Frank L Baum's original tale.
Packed with enchanting special effects, stunning costumes and show-stopping songs, incomparable ‘Defying Gravity’, ‘No Good Deed’ and ‘Popular’ Wicked provides a spellbinding theatre experience you will never forget.
