Wicked the Musical at the Apollo Victoria Theatre has been casting its spell over audiences around the world for a decade! Winning over 100 international awards and having just recently played its landmark 3000th performance, Wicked continues to be a "West End sensation" (Daily Mail). Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl, Elphaba.
Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda's unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba's determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz in Wicked will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
