Wicked Musical 2020 London Apollo Victoria Theatre
Winner of 90 international awards, Wicked has cast its magical spell over audiences of all ages across the world for a decade and continues to be a record-breaking hit at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre.
Based on the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire that re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfill their destinies as Glinda The Good, and Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West.
Packed with thrilling technical wizardry, dazzling costumes, an ingenious and witty story and show-stopping songs (by multi Grammy® and Academy Award® winner Stephen Schwartz), Wicked is an unforgettable, enchanting experience that is not to be missed. A wickedly funny and clever story about the ‘other’ story of Oz
5-star Review of Wicked
Not only does Wicked manage to entertain on a large scale, with striking lighting and a detailed set, but it is also a production that combines dramatic and equally powerful emotional moments between the characters. Overall I found Wicked to be a very enjoyable production. This was my first visit in some time to a major West End show and it definitely won’t be the last.
