Acclaimed as “a wicked and wonderful vision of Oz” (London Evening Standard), “a magical story of friendship, love and growing up” (OfficialLondonTheatre.com) and “pure magic” (Time Out London), the multi award-winning Wicked London production will celebrate it’s landmark 10th birthday at the Apollo Victoria Theatre on Tuesday 27 September 2016 and is already the 8th longest-running show currently playing in West End.

Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L.

Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
