Wicked has got to be one of my all time favourite shows and it’s even better if you know the Wizard of Oz story well – we actually watched the film the night before which meant it was fresh in our minds.
Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two young women who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University; the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destines as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
With show-stopping songs by Stephen Schwartz and adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman from the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is an unforgettable musical that transports audiences to a stunningly re-imagined world of Oz, providing marvels beyond your imagination.
Wicked is showing at Apollo Victoria Theatre, 17 Wilton Rd, Pimlico, London SW1V 1LG
