"An absolute blast. Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes” (The Guardian), WICKED, the West End and Broadway musical sensation, is already the 9th longest running musical in London theatre history. Winner of over 100 major awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning ‘Best West End Show’ on three separate occasions), the classic musical has recently welcomed its 10 millionth visitor.
WICKED imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Opened as a Cinema in 1930 the now Apollo Victoria is a 2,328 capacity theatrical venue brimming with art deco design. Now heading into its 90th year the theatre has transformed into one of the leading West End venues hosting musicals such as The Sound of Music with Petula Clark, Camelot with Richard Harris and Fiddler on the Roof with Topol. In 1984 Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical extravaganza Starlight Express opened and considered the Apollo Victoria its home for many years. In 2006 Wicked, the smash-hit Broadway show opened and continues to go from strength to strength.
