Wicked turn the unlucky 13! We take a look back at our five favourite moments with this long-running spellbinding spectacular. We hope you all have a Wicked Birthday, including all the new cast who premiered in summer this year!

1. Wicked’s performance at West End Live 2019

One of the last performances of Laura Pick and Sophie Evans before the cast change earlier this year, this performance was especially spellbinding. Performing For Good and Gravity, the voices of the women of Wicked really shined.

2. Wicked’s Countdown to curtain up

Wicked has some of the most incredibly intricate, fairy-tale style costumes and make-up of any show in town, so it was fantastic to get a sneak peek of all that goes on behind the scenes. Including how long it takes to get Elphaba *that* shade of green!

3. #TheatreLoungeLive

Las year we had the pleasure of inviting Alice Fearn and Sophie Evans to perform for us at Theatre Lounge Live. Strange enough as it was to see them in jeans and face-paint free, they still managed to bring the magic to these acoustic performances of songs from Wicked.

4. Wicked’s 9th Birthday video

To celebrate Wicked turning 9 back in 2015, the hit musical invited a group of lucky friends to record a very special version of For Good. It will warm the cockles of your heart and – if you’re a big Wicked fan – make you very jealous! Read more about how they made the video here.

5. Sophie Evans meeting Kristin Chenoweth

Wicked’s original Glinda, Kristin Chenoweth, came to visit the West End cast of the show. Sophie Evans, playing the West End role of Glinda at the time, sat down to chat with one of her heroes about the character, the production and the amazing story of female friendship.

If you click through to seat selection (where you'll see either best available or a seating plan), you will be seeing the most up-to-date prices. If this differs from what we've written on the calendar, please bear with us, as those prices will update soon.

We now sell our famous TKTS Booth discounts online here at Official London Theatre.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

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

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider. Our producers continue to plan for all eventualities dependent on the individual needs of their shows and we will provide further updates on specific shows as and when they become available.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
