Running time: 2h 45m
Winner of 100 international awards, Wicked has been casting its magical spell over audiences across the world for a decade and continues to break records at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre, where it is now the 10th longest-running show in the West End.
In a brilliantly witty re-imagining of the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
***** 'The Empire has treated us to some marvellous musicals in the last few years, and action-packed Wicked is one of the best.' Lesley Oldfield, The Journal
***** 'A top-notch production that transports us to the wonderful land of Oz. The show remains as strong, watchable and funny as ever.' Gordon Barr, The Chronicle
'This most magical of musicals has landed on Wearside! The sets shimmer, the cast soar – quite literally – and the score is peppered with infectious toe-tappers. I defy anyone not to be won over'
Katy Wheeler, Sunderland Echo
'The most bewitching show you’re likely to see on tour this year – and possibly any year!'
Viv Hardwick, The Northern Echo
'A spellbinding and spectacular musical. I was completely blown away!'
Michael Pearson, Northumberland Gazette
'Wicked will entrance every generation in wonder, wit and suspense.'
Packed with thrilling technical wizardry, stunning costumes and show-stopping songs (by Academy Award® winner Stephen Schwartz), Wicked is an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages.
'A Wicked and wonderful vision of Oz. A remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises and sensations - Wicked works like a dream.'
London Evening Standard
'Quite simply the best musical I have ever seen.'
Yorkshire Evening Post
