Now in its 12th year in the West End, Wicked is a live experience like no other. Nothing compares to witnessing the mesmerising visual effects, magnificent costumes and spectacular set design in person or hearing the powerful hits “Defying Gravity” and “The Wizard and I” performed live.
You NEED to be in that room and it comes as no surprise that this worldwide phenomenon continues to fill the Apollo Victoria Theatre to the brim.
The alternate story behind ‘The Wizard of Oz’ originally cast its spell over audiences on Broadway in 2003 and has since won over 100 international awards. Wicked continues its incredible success and has gained a huge fan base, with over 8.5 million people in London alone experiencing this enchanting tale.
Wicked is one of the most engaging theatrical experiences of all time, it will overwhelm your senses, challenge your notion of good and evil and glue you to your seat, promising to be a night you’ll never forget!
Alice Fearn stars as Elphaba, her previous West End appearances include Shrek The Musical, Into The Woods, Les Misérables and The Woman in White. Glinda is played by Sophie Evans who was runner-up in the 2010 BBC talent search for the part of Dorothy in Andrew Lloyd Webber's production of The Wizard of Oz.
Fearn and Evans are joined by Bradley Jaden (Fiyero) who will be replaced by 'EastEnders'' David Witts from 23rd July, Melanie La Barrie (Madame Morrible), Andy Hockley (The Wizard), Jack Lansbury (Boq), Martin Ball (Doctor Dillamond) and Sarah McNicholas (Nessarose).
Wicked gives Glinda the Good and Elphaba, the evil Wicked Witch of the West, their chance in the spotlight.
The two characters meet at Shiz University as sorcery students. Glinda is blonde and extremely popular, while Elphaba has green skin and is misunderstood. The witches become unlikely friends, however the cracks in their bond quickly begin to show.
Soon, you find yourself rooting for the person you thought you’d be booing as Glinda's need for popularity sees her seduced by power, while Elphaba chooses to remain true to herself and those she loves.
There are hints of ‘Harry Potter’ in the sorcery school setting and fantastic, fiery special effects which only enhance, never obscure, a sometimes sad, sometimes sexy, but always riveting tale.

Wicked casts a spell on all who see it. With spectacular special effects (flying monkeys, a smoke-breathing dragon), gorgeous costumes, catchy songs and slick dance routines, this is an unmissable piece of musical theatre history.
But Wicked is also thought-provoking. So even if you’re not a musicals fan, you’ll find a lot to like about Wicked - and maybe even something to learn about loneliness and discrimination. No wonder Wicked was voted Entertainment Weekly’s Best Musical of the Decade.
Wicked is suitable for a general audience but is recommended for ages 7+. Children under 3 years of age will not be admitted.
The producers cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays.

The costumes and special effects for this show are so amazing, it costs around $800,000 a week just to stage the Broadway version. And the London production is just as lavish.
The wing span of the Time Dragon Clock is the same as that of a Cessna light aircraft.
There are more than 200 costumes and over 70 wigs - each of which are custom made and can cost between £800 and £1,600 each. It’s money well spent for in December 2010, the show became the first in London to ever take more than £1,000,000 in one week when 20,000 people attended just 9 performances.
