Wicked The Musical – Live from London

When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West, we only ever heard one side of the story. Gregory Maguire‘s acclaimed 1995 novel, ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’, re-imagines the Land of Oz, creating a parallel universe to the familiar story written by L. Frank Baum and first published as ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz‘ in 1900.

We stopped by the beautiful Apollo Theater across the street from Victoria Station in downtown London to catch a performance and were NOT disappointed!

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. Following an encounter with The Wonderful 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.

Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes” (The Guardian), WICKED has won more than 100 major international awards, including three Tony Awards on Broadway and two Olivier Audience Awards in the UK.

WICKED is already the ninth longest running musical in West End history.

‘Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes’ (The Guardian), WICKED imagines a beguiling backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s famous characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Already the 9th longest running musical in West End history and the winner of over 100 major awards, WICKED is one of London’s most popular, colourful and spectacular musicals – and an unforgettable experience. The Apollo Victoria Theatre, home to this classic musical since its West End premiere in 2006, is minutes away from Buckingham Palace and opposite London Victoria Mainline and Underground Stations.

2nd time I’ve seen this show. It’s a good theatrical performance. Great songs to belt out, like Defying Gravity. Daughter’s first trip to Wicked and she loved it. I personally could have done without the noisy 4 year olds and the dressed up from Frozen kids.

Performers were excellent. Both leading ladies were played by their understudies. Both did an outstanding job. Great seats W38/39 for £25 on a deal.
