Happy 15th Birthday to Wicked! Stephen Schwartz celebrates

Wicked the Musical - London Wicked, the hugely popular West End musical, is currently booking until late May 2022. It also just happens to be celebrating its 15th year on stage, an awe-inspiring achievement in a world here very few shows have this level of staying-power. To help us celebrate, here’s a fantastic photo of the great man Stephen Schwartz himself, in London to mark his show’s birthday. If you haven’t experienced the untold tale of the witches of Oz, now’s your chance.

Who’s involved in Wicked?

This award-winning production plays a celebratory performance attended by Stephen Schwartz plus a load of former cast members. As he said, “I'm thrilled to be in London and in the audience at the Apollo Victoria Theatre as Wicked celebrates its 15th anniversary. The amazing emotion and euphoria from the audience on the night the show resumed performances on Broadway made clear to us all the magic that only the shared experience of live theatre can deliver. I am so excited to feel the response from London audiences, especially on this landmark occasion, and I very much hope the show will help drive a revitalized West End.”
