About the show

The Show
Premiering on Broadway in 2003, the global phenomenon that is Wicked continues to captivate audiences in over one hundred cities, in thirteen different countries and seven different languages. A magical tale of friendship, love, power and destiny, Wicked questions the supposed dichotomy of good versus evil and explores the premise of perception truly being reality. Based on Gregory Maguire's 1995 revisionist novel of L. Frank Baum's original works, Wicked reveals the untold story preceding the iconic Wizard of Oz. We follow the adventures and dilemmas of Elphaba and Glinda as they realise their respective callings as 'Wicked Witch of the West' and 'Glinda the Good' via their blossoming friendship, dealings with the corrupt power-wielding Wizard of Oz, and the mutual love-interest towards a young prince named Fiyero. A parallel universe opens up before our eyes as the masterful Stephen Schwartz (music and lyrics) and Joe Mantello (director) lead a vastly talented creative team in bringing the enchanted Land of Oz to life in magnificently lavish style, realising a world of fantasy, sorcery and unrivalled beauty.

History of Wicked
In 1998 Stephen Schwartz approached Universal Studios to realise his vision of a spectacular Broadway production of Maguire's novel which, after several musical workshops, arrived on Broadway in April 2003 - three years later London's West End would receive the same treatment as ecstatic theatre patrons braved freezing temperatures to secure their tickets to see Wicked. The unflinching popularity of this wonderful smash-hit musical shows no signs of waning.

As of 24th April 2024, Wicked is the 10th longest running West End show of all time with 6,762 performances. It is also the 8th longest-running musical in West End history, just behind Starlight Express. The show has been seen by nearly 65 million people worldwide and has amassed over $5 billion in global sales.

Wicked receives stunning applause from vast arrays of media outlets, all singing from the same hymn sheet. Lynn Parsons tells her listeners "There is no show in London that matches the wit, wonder of Wicked - an unforgettable enchanting triumph, dazzling the senses and touching the heart", while Tim Lichfield states that "Wicked combines spectacular visuals and production values with an ingenious story, brilliant performances and genuine emotion". Perfectly summed up, Luke Smith simply puts "It's the best show I've seen in the West End".
