And in these new photos by the brilliant Darren Bell, cast members Alice Fearn (Elphaba), Sophie Evans (Glinda), Bradley Jaden (Fiyero), Melanie La Barrie (Madame Morrible) and Andy Hockley (The Wizard) shine.

Wicked tells the remarkable untold story of the Witches of Oz, based on the acclaimed, 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’.
The Popular show, with musical and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, features songs such as Defying Gravity and For Good, and is currently booking at the Apollo Victoria Theatre until 1 December 2018.
