What's it all about?

2014 Olivier Award Nominee

There's simply no London theatre experience like it. The atmosphere in the audience and the action on stage are phenomenal. It’s no wonder that, ten years since Wicked began, this huge theatre is still full pretty much every night of the week.

Since Wicked first began casting its spell over audiences across the world in 2003 it's won over 90 international awards, and continues to be a 'West End sensation' (Daily Mail) at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre, where it played its landmark 3000th performance in autumn 2013.

If and when it ever finally closes, you’ll look back on the night you visited the Apollo Victoria and know you saw a piece of theatrical history - and had one of the most memorable nights of your life.

What's the story?

You already know the two main characters from the movie The Wizard of Oz. There’s Glinda the good witch, and the green-faced crone who gets vaporised at the end.

Wicked is the story of the events in their youth that formed their adult selves. And what a surprising story it is. Not only are you prompted to ponder the very nature of good and bad, you actually end up rooting for the character you thought you’d come to boo.

There are hints of Harry Potter in the Sorcery School setting and some fantastic, fiery special effects. But they only enhance, never obscure, a sometimes sad, sometimes sexy but always riveting story.

Who's in it?

Willemijn Verkaik has been forced to end her run as Elphaba prematurely for health reasons and will give her final performance on 19 July 2014. Emma Hatton will play Elphaba until 2 August, then from 4 August - 25 October Kerry Ellis will take over the role.  

Ellis is beloved of Wicked fans as the original British Elphaba, having played the role in London in 2007 and New York in 2008. Now, she will defy gravity once again for a strictly limited 12-week run. Her other West End roles include Nancy in Oliver, Fantine in Les Miserables and Mimi in the 20th Anniversary convert of Rent. 

Savannah Stevenson plays Glinda. Her previous theatre credits include Chariots of Fire at the Gielgud & Hampstead Theatres, Aspects of Love at the Menier Chocolate Factory, The Secret Garden at the West Yorkshire Playhouse,  Simply Cinderella at the Leicester Curve, and Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward Theatre.  

The show also stars Jeremy Taylor as Fiyero, Sue Kelvin as Madame Morrible, Martyn Ellis as The Wizard, Paul Clarkson as Doctor Dillamond, Sam Lupton as Boq, Katie Rowley Jones as Nessarose, Emma Hatton as Standby Elphaba and Sophie Linder-Lee as Standby Glinda.

Who is Wicked: London suitable for?

While teenagers absolutely love Wicked (especially girls), it casts its spell on parents too. The show is a real crowd-pleaser, with spectacular special effects (flying monkeys, a smoke-breathing dragon), gorgeous costumes, catchy songs and slick dance routines.

But it’s also thought-provoking. So even if you’re not a musicals fan, you’ll find a lot to like about Wicked - and maybe even something to learn about loneliness and discrimination. No wonder it was voted Entertainment Weekly’s Best Musical of the Decade.

Wicked is suitable for a general audience but is recommended for ages 7+. Children under 3 years of age will not be admitted.

Wicked: London reviews - staff

Wicked has everything you can possibly want from a musical: colourful costumes, lavish set, great characters, comedy and a fantastic score featuring show stopping numbers such as 'Defying Gravity' (guaranteed to leave you with goosebumps). I have seen this show 8 times so far and never tire of it. It is simply 'wonderful'. Is the Wicked Witch of the West actually even Wicked? Go and see it and you decide.

A truly amazing story - you need to know the story of The Wizard Of Oz and Wicked will answer your questions. Great music - and a real love story!

Brilliant show with lots of colour and fun. Theatre: excellent view from all seats in stalls.

What a great show. I went to the matinee performance on Saturday 23rd March 2013 and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wasn't sure what to expect at first as I didn't really know much about Wicked but was very impressed with the acting.

not many people will fly 8000 miles for a play..i will,as long as paul baker is in it...as usual, he is wonderful, and the show great!!!..I will have seen it 23 times...brilliant

Fantastic show worth every penny. Would see again!

A refreshing version on the wizard of oz that interlinks with the original.

Im a bloke aged 43 and truthfully wasn't looking forward to seeing wicked, but how pleasantly surprised i was. It was just utterly amazing from start to finish, very funny and superbly acted. A MUST WATCH TRUST ME

Wicked: London photos

Is anything more spine-tingling than hearing the audience murmur drop to a hush and seeing the house lights go down? Can anything beat the thrill of watching the actors emerge from the wings, ready to give the performance of a lifetime?

At TheatrePeople.com we love these moments more than anything, and we want you to enjoy your live theatre experience just as much.

To get you in the mood for your visit to Wicked, we’ve prepared this gorgeous gallery of images from the show for your perusal and pleasure. It’s a pre-show peek at the West End cast and key elements of the production that’s sure to up your anticipation for the real thing.

These images are from the current production of Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. Wicked is the previously untold story of how Elphaba and Glinda, two unlikely friends from the Land of Oz, grew up to become the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North.

In L. Frank Baum’s books about Oz the Wicked Witch didn’t actually have a name; novelist Gregory Maguire christened her properly for the first time when he wrote Wicked, using Baum’s initials L.F.B. phonetically to create ‘Elphaba’.

The musical is based on Maguire’s 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West and was adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. Its director is Joe Mantello.

Wicked originally premiered at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco in June 2003 before transferring to Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre in October that same year. It’s won a number of awards, including an Olivier Award for Most Popular Show in 2010.

Whether you’ve already booked your seats for Wicked through us or you’re still making up your mind, we hope this gallery gives you a feeling for the essence of the show. We know where we’d like to be next time the curtain goes up at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. Perhaps we’ll see you there.

Wicked: London videos

  • Wicked: London

The smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd is what theatre’s all about. It may be a cliché but we bet it’s true for you too. There’s nothing like being there. That said, we know that a trip to the theatre can be a big commitment in terms of preparation and travel.

Check out our video sampler of Wicked, currently playing at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in the West End. It can’t give you the in-the-moment, large-as-life buzz of the real deal. But it’s the best way to get a taste of Wicked before you book your seat.

It’s is the untold story of two unlikely friends from the Land of Oz, Elphaba, the misunderstood girl with green skin and Glinda, the popular blonde who grow up to become the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North.

The show is an awe-inspiring musical that’s drawn particular attention for its extraordinary principal cast, inventive set and cutting-edge special effects. Wicked is one of the most profitable musical theatre shows in the world, consistently smashing box office records.

The week commencing December 27, 2010, the London production grossed £1,002,885, the highest weekly gross in West End theatre history up until that point. Over 20,000 theatregoers attended performances of the show that week.

Joe Mantello is the director of Wicked, which was adapted from Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Winnie Holzman with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz. The show originally premiered in London in September 2006.

We hope you enjoy this peek at the current London production of Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. For further information and to book a seat, click on the relevant section above or at the sides of this page.

The costumes and special effects for this show are so amazing, it costs around $800,000 a week just to stage the Broadway version. And the London production is just as lavish.

The wing span of the Time Dragon Clock is the same as that of a Cessna light aircraft.

There are more than 200 costumes and over 70 wigs - each of which are custom made and can cost between £800 and £1,600 each. It’s money well spent for in December 2010, the show became the first in London to ever take more than £1,000,000 in one week when 20,000 people attended just 9 performances.
