Wicked London Tickets
Wicked London 2018 tickets
Everyone remembers the classic family movie adaptation of Baum's The Wizard of Oz, starring Hollywood legend Judy Garland. There are many icons in the story: the ruby slippers, the yellow brick road, the emerald city - but nothing so iconic as the wicked witch of the west. Nobody is born evil, and Wicked takes us through the journey of Elphaba's tragic journey to becoming the wicked witch of the west!
One of the most popular musical theatre shows of all time, Wicked has been captivating West End audiences since 2006, going on to become the 18th longest-running box office smash hits. Hosted in London's prestigious Apollo Victoria Theatre, the production has featured some of the biggest names in theatre, and is continuously praised for both its performing actors and incredible costume design.
Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire which, in turn, takes inspiration from L. Frank Baum's children's classic The Wizard of Oz, this spellbinding production tells the untold story of the world's most famous fictional witches. First opening at London Victoria's Apollo Theatre in 2006, the musical has been seen by over eight million people and is now one of the longest-running shows in the West End.
Beginning with the dying scene of the Wicked Witch of the West from the original Wizard of Oz, Good Witch of the South Glinda ruminates on the "actual" events that led up to her Wicked counterpart's death, starting with her sister Nessarose's enrolment into Shiz University. Elphaba's unusual appearance causes her to be shunned by the fellow students until she strikes up an unexpected friendship with her roommate Glinda. As the musical pans out, audiences come to realise that the events of The Wizard of Oz may not have been as they seemed and find themselves left in awe as a more complex tale emerges.
Boasting spectacular set design, hit songs like the crown jewel of the score "Defying Gravity" and the catchy "Popular" and beautifully choreographed dances, this heart-warming tale promises not to leave a dry eye in the house.
