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.
Me and my partner came to london for a few days and this was 1 tick of our bucket list. This was my first musical i have been too, and i always wanted it to be wicked. And WOW im glad it was. It was amazing from start to finish, all the cast the crew the orchestra, the costumes, the setting in the Theatre, it was all amazing. The singing from all the cast was amazing, especially from glinda and elphaba ( lisa & laura) I would definitely see this again. And I definitely want to see more musicals,thank you all again for a awesome show.
Really enjoyed the whole experience - lovely theatre, helpful staff and great show. Fun evening had by all.
Took my friend to see the show for her birthday and it was incredible! we had the best evening in London and hope to return to see it again soon! anyone who hasn't been should!
Not really my thing . Posh panto with instantly forgettable songs which droned on and on . Good costumes though
We went to see this show with my 6 year old daughter. She thought it was amazing but there were moments when it was a bit too loud and scary for her and also a little too long and involved a story line for her. We did all enjoy it though and the cast are extraordinary singers and dancers. The sets, costumes, light & sound effects are also fantastic and bring the show to life!!
Brilliant show, fantastic singing and dancing, costumes were amazing. Enjoyed every minute.
Beautiful production . Been a fan for years. Only now getting to see it .
Dreadful show. best number was just before the interval. But it was not enough to make me stay for the rest
Excellent! Really enjoyable production. The wicked witch has an enchanting voice, so enjoyable to listen to.
Absolutely fantastic performance, from the actors/actresses, the orchestra, the effects and scenery, all of it was just brilliant. Even the way the theatre was decked out. Went for my 30th Birthday and I had the best time! Highly recommend to anyone to go and see.
We had an excellent time.
Excellent musical. However no one to guide us to our seats at the theatre, no one to offer us a theatre guide of Wicked to buy, that was disappointing.
Reading all the 5* reviews online, I had much better expectations of a musical that’s been in theatres for almost two decades. But obviously those who Wrote those reviews have very little theatre experience. However, this wasn't only my opinion. My 15 year old daughter and 12 year old son felt very bored, even though it was their first trip to London, and we're excited about it. Maybe if I had seen the play in 2003, I would've rated it better, but in 2019, it sure feels outdated and irrelevant.
Fantastic performance Stunning
Theater was beautiful and amenities were clean. Staff was helpful and kind. Concessions were reasonably priced and thoroughly enjoyable. We are considering season tickets because of our experience.
Wonderful show. One of the best I’m seen.
I enjoyed the show, good signing and excellent acting
Wow! What can I say apart from WOW! It was amazing from start to finish, singing was brilliant I had goosebumps all the way through. Will definitely without a doubt be coming back for more.
Excellent show well worth the money
Brilliant my granddaughter and myself loved it. Fantastic voices.
Overall the performance was disappointing. Positives: sets good, costumes good. Witch had wonderful voice. Choreography good Could be better: too much of the music was same and songs too long. Singing harsh and unnatural in places. Words incoherent. Far too loud all through. Story line drawn out and whole thing 30 minutes too long.
Went way beyond our expectations. Wicked was an experience that we will cherish.
We all enjoyed it and will be raving about it for a long time! The set and costumes were outstanding, as were the cast.
It was excellent both my friend and I enjoyed it, we came to the theatre instead of buying each other a Christmas present,thank you.
Really enjoyed the whole show.amazing singers dancers and costumes. The theartre was goid and nice and clean with good facilities . We had great seats And a really good time
This was truly spectacular. First class production. Performances. Costumes. Music and everyone was helpful. Has changed my mind about wizard of oz. I am not saying?
absolutely breathtaking the music, costumes just the best night out
The best show I’ve seen so far. Loved it. Production & performers were just amazing.
I took my daughter to see the show for Christmas. The music, performers and set was all very well done and I think that even with us sitting very close to the back we had a pretty amazing view. Story-wise I felt that it didn't really kick off until the second half, where I was almost in tears ( because it arrested my heart in a good way) . I loved the way it paid homage to ' The Wizard of Oz'. My daughter really enjoyed it too. :)
Superb production with excellent cast and wonderful set
My daughters first theatre production and wow what a wonderful experience it was amazing we all loved the Apollo the staff were amazing, the show itself was one of the best I’ve seen. Spectacular! Now my daughter is hooked on theatre and I’m booking the next show up as we speak! I thank everyone for a wonderful experience. Keep doing what you do. Everyone.
We had a wonderful time with all the family, and all thoroughly enjoyed Wicked
Amazing! They're all great
It was my birthday treat. N what a treat it was. My little girls still singing it 2days later. Top quality singing, and the dancers are on point. 😁👍
We were situated behind two people who I believe had learning difficulties. They talked and shouted loudly throughout the show as a result my daughter and I left the show at 2150 hrs, unable to tolerate it any further
Fabulous seats in an amazing old theatre. The voices of the cast filled the whole theatre, beautiful voices. Would wholeheartedly recommend to anybody. My 6 year old granddaughter was hanging off of her booster seat the whole way through
I think the storyline was very clever and all the songs were sung to perfection. I would 100% go again but the seats were a bit far from the stage and no cup holders. Not at all hand when you have to hold a drink and binoculars at the same time .
We went a family of four for my daughter 16th birthday and even my son who is 14 loved it. It is one not to be missed
I went with my 18 year old daughter (it was part of her birthday present). Why did I wait so long? It was absolutely brilliant! We both loved it! I would definitely recommend it and will go to see it again soon.
The show was awsome.
Absolutely amazing production
Absolutely amazing!! Couldn’t have imagined it any better!
It was a good experience overall, the acting was brilliang but some songs too long and a little dull. The story was moving and the characters very well portrayed. If given the chance, a person should watch it.
I have seen wicked 3 times however this time was the best performance I have seen! Flawless such talented singers and performances! Would highly recommend to everyone!
Wickedly delicious show!
Took my partner as a 30th birthday treat and we weren’t let down, absolutely fantastic show loved every minute of it
