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.
This is a show that my wife has wanted to see for a long time. It certainly lived up to the hype. It was witty, charming, endearing and spellbounding. My wife actually cried at the end ....tears of pure joy, may I add.
Enjoyable.?excellent singing voices from lead actors
Absolutely fantastic show. A firm favourite! Theatre great and right next to the underground.
I cried for the whole show, so touching. Great costumes and amazing voices
It’s all in the name, really. Whole cast incredibly talented - you’re locked in the moment it starts right to the end. Get some snacks, you’ll need it as the show is 2 1/2 hours long.
I have seen wicked before in two different locations and took my friend for her birthday. It was a wonderful experience very good acting and singing and my friend it’s very emotionally touched. Great job
It was absolutely amazing. I can't fault one thing. I loved every minute of it and I didn't want it to end. The costumes, lighting and set were incredible. I laughed and cried and got goosebumps at the talent of the actors. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
This was the first musical I’ve ever experienced, thinking it was just going to be a remake of the book and nothing new but I was blown away! The performance was amazing, vocals were superb and the stage management was on another level. I was sitting on the edge of my seat the whole time looking forward to what was going to happen and I was not disappointed. It didn’t just meet my expectations, it exceeded them. 10/10 and 100% recommend!
When I eventually stopped crying, I realised that I had just witnessed an amazing show. Great music, amazing set pieces, simply gorgeous
We came on Mon 2nd Sept and show was outstanding!!!! I had very high expectations as friends had already been but I was completely blown away! From the set and the amazing costumes to the amazingly talented cast! It was just amazing!!!
This is the 3rd time I have seen wicked myself but this was a treat for my daughters 8th birthday she absolutely loved it and it's just got better every time I've seen it
Very entertaining with great quality so going and acting , fab costumes well worth the money
A totally enjoyable experience with an explosion of colour. We really enjoyed the show and Elphaba was sensational. We would see the show again.
Excellent show to watch. Entertaining from start to finish
Second time I have seen this show. Tonight I treated my visiting cousin and daughter to show and they were not disappointed. A sleek and very impressive show with a magnificent cast and lovely music. Would recommend this show to all. Great night out on the town.
Amazing from start to finish. Loved it ❤️❤️
I,ve wanted to see this show for a while.Friends had raved about it,it did,nt disappoint.Wonderful show,all the actors were great especially the actor who played Elfabar,her voice was incredible.Would highly recommend this show.Thanks Wicked.🤗
I have wanted to see this show for a very long time and it didn’t disappoint. Thoroughly enjoyed it from being to end, up beat and fast moving throughout which leaves you feeling an evening well spent.
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.
