Experience the unforgettable, award-winning musical WICKED and discover that you’ve not been told the whole story about the land of Oz…
WICKED is the extraordinary musical that has wowed audiences around the world and is packed with spectacular sets and costumes, epic stage effects and one of the most beautiful and tuneful scores in the West End.
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 ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
With music and lyrics by Oscar winner Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman and direction by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, Wicked opened at the Apollo Victoria Theatre on 27 September 2006 (previews from 7 September 2006) and has been wildly successful ever since.
Wicked tells the untold story of an unlikely friendship between the blonde and popular witch Glinda and a misunderstood green witch named Elphaba. Following an encounter with The Wizard, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
