Why go and see it?

“If you’re looking for an unforgettable night at the theatre, there really is no place like ‘Wicked!’” (Smooth Radio). Book your tickets now!

With music and lyrics by multi-Oscar, Golden Globe and Grammy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, The Prince of Egypt, The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and a book by Tony Award-nominee Winnie Holzman, Wicked is currently the ninth longest-running West End musical of all time, having been seen at the Apollo Victoria Theatre London by over eleven million people.

Production shot

Two-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello directs this “devilishly clever spin on The Wizard of Oz” (The Daily Telegraph), with musical staging by Tony-winner Wayne Cilento.

One of the West End’s true modern classics.
- Metro
An absolute blast. Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes.
- The Guardian
An emotional and unforgettable experience.
- Steve Allen, LBC

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines a beguiling backstory to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters, and reveals the magic that shaped the destinies of two unlikely friends on their remarkable journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

After the continuing success of the Broadway run, two US tours, two UK tours, and countless international productions, Wicked recently celebrated fifteen triumphant years at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. This essential West End musical is the winner of over 100 major international awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards, a Grammy Award and ten theatregoer voted WhatsOnStage Awards (including three for ‘Best West End Show’).

West End star Lucie Jones (Waitress, Les Misérables) plays the role of Elphaba, with Helen Woolf returning to continue her acclaimed performance as Glinda. The Olivier-nominated Sophie-Louise Dann (The Girls) stars as Madame Morrible, with stage and screen legend Gary Wilmot (Anything Goes, The Prince of Egypt) featuring as The Wizard. Ryan Reid (Dreamgirls) plays Fiyero. Carina Gillespie (Nessarose), Nicholas McLean (Boq), and Simeon Truby (Doctor Dillamond) all continue in their starring roles.

Wicked is suitable for a general audience. As a guide to parents and guardians, it is recommended for ages 7+. Please note that loud noises, flashing lights, smoke effects and strobe lighting feature in the production.

The producers cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness, injury and statutory leave entitlement.
