The critically acclaimed musical is now in its 11th smash-hit year at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre, where it is already the 17th longest running show in West End theatre history, and a two-time winner of the Olivier Audience Award. Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
