    HAPPY 5TH BIRTHDAY WICKED!

    Today, London's West End production of Wicked will celebrate its 5th Birthday. Opening on 27th September 2006, Wicked has now grossed over £145 million at the Apollo Victoria box office

     

    WICKED is based on Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a parallel novel of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and the classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz from 1900.
     
    Wicked is currently the 9th longest running musical in the West End and the 18th longest running musical in the West End of all time.  The opening year of 2006 saw many other classic musicals opening in London's West End including Avenue Q, Cabaret, Dirty Dancing, Evita and the Sound of Music to name just a few. Of these,  Wicked is the only still running and in December 2010, it became the first West End show ever to gross more than £1 million at the box office in a single week.
     
    Executive producer for Wicked in the UK, Michael McCabe commented: “This is an incredible landmark for all of us involved in Wicked and we couldn’t be more delighted to have become such a popular, long-running hit. We are also proud that our continued success has enabled us to support so many charitable projects though our on-going ‘For Good’ programme. Our heartfelt thanks go to every single person who is part of this extraordinary production and to the millions of theatregoers who have been so supportive of the show since our very first performance five years ago.”
     
    Wicked is currently booking until 27 October 2012.
