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 now been seen by almost 10 million people in London alone.
‘Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes’ (The Guardian), 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 becomingGlinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
Transporting audiences to a stunningly re-imagined world of Oz, this unforgettable musical features stunning costumes, spectacular sets and show-stopping songs in a night of spellbinding theatrical magic.
In this fantastic retelling of the classic story, the green-skinned Elphaba is a well-meaning outcast with a heightened sense of justice, while the popular Glinda has a need to feel liked and admired. The two meet in school, where their friendship and their lives take a number of startling turns in a rather short time.
Absolutely brilliant show. Had goosebumps the whole way through. Quality of music and voices is unmatched.
Fourth time I have seen Wicked...twice in Australia, once in New York and now in London. Loved it as much this time!! Dont think it will be my last time. Captivating from start to finish.
A wonderful musical in a top class theatre...excellent viewing and acoustics. Theatre is very conveniently located directly opposite Victoria station. The team looking after us was very friendly and willing to help.
Wow!! What a spectacle. I bought these tickets for my daughters 10th birthday. This would be her first proper show and it didn't disappoint. From the stage to the fantastic costumes, the dancers, choreography and the characters, it was a feast. We were spellbound. The story was fluid and we bought into it from the beginning. The music was timeless and the acting was phenomenal. It's a must see for anyone visiting London and as I hoped my daughter now has the show bug. We will be back to see it again.
My second time of seeing this exhilarating show. The songs, the sets but above all the wonderful cast, especially the leads. The previous time i had the opportunity to meet the cast and have a tour back stage after the show. Here's to the next time.
I went to watch Wicked on my own as I am in London for a few days, I’ve seen this before but I was yet again blown away by the absolute superb performance. I had goosebumps all the way through and a tear in my eye from the amazing performance. Would highly recommend to anyone and all ages looking for an amazingly enjoyable night. Will definitely be booking again for the future!
It was lovely: beautiful and funny.
Loved the show beautiful costumes amazing singing from all the cast my granddaughters were captivated by the whole experience
Elphie’s voice was INCREDIBLE. My god. 😍😍😍
Absolutely amazing... 1st time I’ve seen this show but my partner has seen it many times and I can see why. Nikki Bentley who played Elphaba was definitely the star of the show.
The costumes were amazing and so were the songs
What a fabulous show loosing nothing for being a matinee Our granddaughter loved it all singing along to the songs she knew Brilliant
The show was brilliant, the actors were great, it was a show well worth watching!
Wicked was WICKED
The show was very good, costumes and staging was excellent only criticism would be some of the singing seem to be shouted instead of sung.
This was my 4 time seeing wicked went for the last show with Sophie Evans and Alice fern , we are true oz fans anyone wanting to see it won’t be disappointed.
Wicked is by far the best show ever. From the start to the finish I was memorised, the cast performance, singing, stage set, everything was truly a spellbinding experience.
Absolutely brilliant! I booked the tickets spur of the moment the day before and am so happy I did. The whole show was fantastic from start to finish. The 2 lead actresses have the most phenomenal voices!
Me and my friend came to watch wicked with her two daughter 11 and 4 and we all thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the show. The 4 year old loved the witch. The Defying Gravity song was amazing. We couldn't pick one single part as every part was breathtaking and amazing. We loved everything about it.
Bit pointless reviewing a long running hit, but it was really good, amazing sets, choreography and acting. I can't remember a single song, but the microphones do tend to distort a little, going to buy the book, think that says it all really.
Although the visual affects, costumes, stage scenery and dance routines were very good, I felt the show had no real story line that gripped me at all. The singing was mainly shouting and I could not understand any words that the actors sang or spoke. I am afraid my husband felt the same and we left at the interval. As for the bar I thought £19.80 for a gin & tonic, bottle of Birra Morella and chocolate buttons was extortionate.
what an awesome show, great for all ages, my daughter loved every moment! it was great to see.
Wounderful friendly staff and the show was amazing a must see!! Definitely will be coming back
I booked from New Zealand and treated my friend and daughter. We all found it captivating and humorous. The audience was engaged throughout and had a fantastic time. The costumes were amazing and the actors voices were awesome. The story behind the wicked witch was an extra bonus, as neither of us knew it. Well done ‘Wicked’!
We absolutely loved the show
I've now seen the show 3 times, and it just gets better and better, from the start to the finish it's a tail of hurt, laughter, friendship and love, a great twist to the original film...just love it....all I can say is it's.....WICKED
The show is first class, from start to finish. The performers are brilliant actors and incredible singers. There were moments when I was completely blown away with emotion by Alice Fearn’s performance. How the cast is so physical in movement yet able to hold those long notes with their voices, I’ll never know. The set changes and lighting takes one to a different place full of magic and wonder. The story is portrayed elegantly, with a plethora of emotions including sadness, wonderful humour and of course, love. And let’s not forget the amazing music supplied by the live musicians tucked away under the stage, especially the dude on the drums! The Apollo Victoria theatre is beautiful with plenty of space, friendly staff, comfortable surroundings and all the amenities one could want. All in all, a spectacular evening.
We went to Wednesday matinee not realising most of the audience would be schoolchildren. The ensemble cast were good with excellent dancing and the sets were spectacular. For us the show was spoilt by some of the excessively loud singing. In particular we could not follow Alice Fearn’s dialogue even when she was talking and this became worse when she was singing which made it quite difficult to follow the plot. We were able to hear the rest of the cast.
Fabulous My 10 year old grand daughter enjoyed it as much as I did
I have seen Wicked three times now and I get goosebumps everytime. The story is so clever and well written and the songs are just devine.
Pity the coolers were next to us. Missed a lot if the dialogue due to the noise
Wicked was absolute OUTSTANDING i laughed i cried the story was fantastic do many twists and turns very veey cleaver. And the cast wow the dancers were incredible the girl with the red hair i couldnt take my eyes off her. And the main cast were out of this world we will be seeing it again thank you for an unbelieveable show!
This is the 5th time I’ve seen this show, and it still feels like I’m watching it for the first time. The effort put into this production is incredible. The actors and actresses - WOW. The percussion- WOW. Cannot fault this whatsoever. I will be back!!! I cry every time - simply amazing.
Wow the seats were cheap and I was shocked to realised that in spite of being high up I had a fantastic view. I couldn't make out facial details but I could see clearly what was happening. Vocals and songs were amazing, the performance brilliant. Ice cream was ridiculously over priced though and stairs very narrow so would recommend low heels of you go. I took a star because toilets were incredibly smelly and could do with air freshener but otherwise a fantastic night!
I absolutely love Wicked and to say I have seen it 8 times and planned 2 more trips to see it shows how much of a good show it is. Definitely something for everyone in the show. Well and truly magical
Amazing set Cast Costumes Music Loved
Absolutely amazing, the vocals were outstanding. I would definately watch again xxx
Amazing cast and very cleverly put together! Highly recommend!
Great show My daughter loved it The story line was wierd Plus a plus a couple of songs wasnt that good The seats was great
This is how fantastic this show is we have seen it twice in one week from start to finish full of great vocal songs .the acting was amazing overall we would have to say it was wicked
Loved the messages this production gives. Alice Fearne as Elphaba is excellent. Her voice gave me goosebumps. Wednesday matinee and the place was full. The school kids were enthralled.
Stunning performance by each and every cast member, highly recommended to see this show I have seen it 5 times and still cant wait to go back, just fabulous.
This is one of the best shows i’ve seen.
