About the show

A stunning adaptation of Gregory Maguire's spellbinding novel, Wicked The Musical tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz. Return to the Emerald City in the enchanted land of Oz, and find out what happened before Dorothy began her journey down the Yellow Brick Road.

Beginning before L. Frank Baum's much-loved tale, the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the story starts at Shiz University where the bubbly, blonde Glinda and green-skinned Elphaba first meet. The polar opposite pair take an instant dislike to one another, but despite their differences, they eventually form a firm friendship. In a land where it's not easy being green, the duo are forced to go their separate ways following an ominous encounter with the almighty Wizard of Oz. Their different paths lead them to fulfilling their destinies as the iconic witches that we know and love — Glinda the Good Witch of the North and Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West.

Magical and mesmerising, Wicked The Musical is a modern theatrical masterpiece, complete with dazzling costumes, spectacular special effects and even a few flying monkeys. A Theatreland favourite, the hit musical boasts a Grammy award-winning score, packed with irresistibly catchy show tunes, including the instantly recognisable 'Defying Gravity'.

Bewitching from the outset, Wicked The Musical is a West End experience like no other, perfect for first time theatregoers, as well as accomplished audience members.

Interesting facts about Wicked The Musical

  • Easy as ABC — Elphaba got her name from the phonetic pronunciation of L. Frank Baum's initials: LFB = El. Pha. Ba.
  • What's the time Mr Dragon — The Time Dragon Clock which hangs above the stage has a 36 ft wingspan — the same as a Cessna light aircraft.
  • Green with envy — Elphaba's emerald skin is created by MAC Chromacake make up in Landscape Green.

History of Wicked The Musical

After reading Gregory Maguire's novel on holiday, Stephen Schwartz was blown away by the tale's potential for a theatrical adaptation. Maguire had sold the story to Universal, but Schwartz, green with envy, managed to persuade them to release the rights to create his stage version. Wicked The Musical first cast its spell on American audiences, premiering in San Francisco in May 2003 before opening on Broadway later that year. Elphaba's broomstick finally landed in the West End in 2006 and has been enchanting theatregoers ever since.

History of the Apollo Victoria Theatre

The second-largest theatre in the West End, the Apollo Victoria was originally built to be a cinema in the 1920s.

Brimming with art deco design, the Grade II listed Apollo Victoria Theatre first opened its doors in 1929. Having been commissioned as a purpose-built cinema during the boom in talking pictures, the venue was built with stage facilities and occasionally played host to one-off events such as Big Band nights.

Threatened with closure in 1950, the venue branched out and staged various entertainments including ballet and live shows, as well as film screenings. However, the venue eventually closed, screening the last films in November 1975, with the theatre remaining closed for a further six years.

Re-opening in 1981 under its present name as a concert and theatre auditorium, the Apollo Victoria Theatre made its debut with a Shirley Bassey concert. The theatre was home to a number of musicals, most notably Andrew Lloyd Webber's skating showstopper Starlight Express. To make way for the extravagant production, the walls were painted black and over 1,000 seats were removed in order to install a giant multi-tiered skating arena.

Starlight Express rolled out of the Apollo Victoria in 2002 and, after a string of short runs, the venue became home to the witches of Oz in Wicked The Musical.
