Wicked defies more than just gravity
Stephen Schwartz's spectacular musical is now celebrating its 14th year in the West End and has been seen by an astonishing ~10 million theatregoers over the course of more than 5,500 London performances. Wicked has also enjoyed its fair share of theatre records and is currently the ninth longest-running West End musical of all time and the 13th longest-running West End show of all time. Having won over 100 major theatre awards, including three Tony Awards and two Olivier Awards, it's easy to see why this spell-binding production continues to captivate those who choose to see it.
Wicked musical background and additional info
The musical Wicked is based on Gregory Maguire's best-selling novel entitled Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West and was adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman. It features characters created by L Frank Baum from his hit book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, which spawned both the classic 1939 musical fantasy film starring Judy Garland and the loosely-adapted 1978 blacksploitation film starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, and Nipsey Russell. L Frank Baum's own namesake inspired the name of Wicked's protagonist slash antagonist, Elphaba (i.e.the initials L. F. B.).
The current West End production of Wicked is directed by Joe Mantello and stars Nikki Bentley as Elphaba opposite Helen Woolf as Glinda. They are joined by Alistair Brammer as Elphaba's love interest Fiyero, Andy Hockley as The Wizard, George Ure as Boq, Kim Ismay as Madame Morrible, Natasha Ferguson as Nessarose, and Simeon Truby as Doctor Dillamond. The London cast of Wicked is completed by Laura Pick as a standby for Elphaba and Lisa-Anne Wood as a standby for Glinda.
Ferguson is currently covering for Carina Gillespie who is on maternity leave. Nicholas McLean will take over the role of Boq from George Ure on 20 January 2020.
