About Wicked

Fall under Elphaba’s spell and witness theatre magic at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London’s West End. Wicked tickets are available on London Theatre now.

Wicked, a must-see theatrical experience

Wicked tells the untold story of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good Witch in one unforgettable show. Prepare to be amazed by the technical wizardry, dazzling costumes, show-stopping songs, and witty nods to L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz. Even though it's one of the longest-running London musicals, Wicked continues redefining modern musical theatre for an entire generation, challenging our preconceptions of good and evil.

What is Wicked the Musical about?

What happened before Dorothy uttered that famous question "there's no place like home"? Meet Elphaba and Glinda. One's a green-skinned witch, and the other's a preppy student who typically gets what she wants. The unlikely friendship of Elphaba and Glinda at Shiz University leads to a powerful tale of love, acceptance, and friendship that will speak to audiences of all ages and delight those familiar with the original wonderful story.

Why do people love Wicked?

The untold story of the Witches of Oz has captured the hearts of audiences for years with its exploration of universal themes like empowerment and friendship, led by two strong female leads. We follow them on their journey from unlikely friends at Shiz University to their respective destinies and the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. Wicked reimagines the beloved story of Oz and provides a thought-provoking look at the complexities of good and evil, the power of redemption, and the enduring bonds of friendship.

There's something for everyone in the show, with London Theatre saying: "Wicked leaves the audience with food for thought and also wanting more. It’s no wonder that the musical has captured the hearts of so many over the years and will continue to do so for many years to come. Wicked is certainly here to stay in the West End for good.”

Who wrote the music for Wicked?

The musical features a score by multi-Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz. Stephen Schwartz created music for shows such as Wicked, Pippin, Godspell and The Prince of Egypt. Find out more about Stephen Schwartz.

Epic, Great singing, Entertaining, Enchanting, Ambitious

See it if you want excellent staging and a show stopping act one finale, to hear some very popular musical theatre songs, to know what the buzz is!

Don’t see it if I felt that it was a bit tired and not a very cohesive plot. Maybe I came in with too high of expectations.
