See Wicked for witches, special effects and great family fun!
If you love The Wizard of Oz you’ll enjoy Wicked, the madcap story of the two witches who star in Dorothy and Toto’s splendid adventure, in which Glinda the good witch and the Wicked Witch of the West take to the stage, wowing full-house family audiences night after night. One coveted Grammy award for the show album, three Tony awards and an Olivier award make this one of the West End’s most popular family musical productions.
Wicked – The story
Glinda the good witch and the green faced Wicked Witch of the West were young once. This is the story of their youth, and how they became the women they are. Wicked tells the tale of a deep friendship between the two girls, who meet as sorcery students at Shiz University. Glinda is popular and pretty, but Elphaba is green, constantly misunderstood because of her colour and manner.
It sounds like a simple plot. There are some splendid special effects. But behind the flames and drama there’s a surprisingly poignant tale. The real beauty of Wicked is that it leaves you wondering what’s right and what’s wrong. How would you respond to loneliness and isolation… would you turn out like the Wicked Witch of the West? There are some excellent comic moments to relieve the drama and with a storyline like this, no wonder Wicked is such a great night out for grown-ups as well as children.
Wicked is famous for creating an amazingly powerful theatre atmosphere and manages to pack the house every night. The cast have received rave reviews. And the show’s score is rapidly embedding itself in our culture, just like the scores of so many great West End musicals.
Wicked song list
Wicked is a wonderful crowd-pleaser and the special effects, beautiful costumes, cool choreography and clever plotting make it a favourite with people who, as a general rule, don’t like musicals. Act one of the show’s catchy score includes twenty or so catchy tunes including No One Mourns the Wicked, Dear Old Shiz, The Wizard and I, What Is This Feeling?, Something Bad and Dancing Through Life. Popular, I'm Not That Girl and One Short Day, A Sentimental Man and Defying Gravity.
Act two thrills audiences with rousing songs including Thank Goodness, Wonderful, As Long As You're Mine, No Good Deed, March of the Witch Hunters and For Good.

Great but too hot
Great show, but not one for Summer. The theatre was sweltering and it ruined the experience.
Jonathan London Box Office customer
Extremely hot in threatre difficult to enjoy the show
John London Box Office customer
Wickedly Hot Theatre
Show was well done and very enjoyable. Like most places in London this summer, the Apollo Victoria theatre was not at all prepared for the heat in London and it make the theatre unbearable. See the show, but avoid going on a hot evening in London.
Gurmeet London Box Office customer
Hugo London Box Office customer
I couldn't sit in my seat and stood up back the whole show. There is more leg space on a plane. It was boiling inside and the Apollo was selling cheap hand fans for 10 pounds each. Good show though. Kids enjoyed it.
Greg London Box Office customer
The show was amazing. The temperature in the theatre was almost unbearable.
Mike London Box Office customer
Top notch performers telling a beautiful story. A must see!!! No air conditioning though... avoid watching in the summer, especially in those days temperatures reach 30+
Edmundo London Box Office customer
Wicked is such a fabulous musical but our whole experience was marred by the inadequate cooling system in Apollo Thestre Victoria. It was a terribly hot day & when we were seated we felt very uncomfortable & as the show progressed the heat really got to us. My sis gave up & went down to the foyer to watch it on the small screen while I stood next to the cooler so I would not feel nauseated by the perspiration from people seated on either side. Hope they could improve the ventilation & cooling systems in the theatre.
Sukhvinder London Box Office customer
Good show but
The show was good, however, it was too hot and There was one AC behind us very noisy Also I could not hear the actres very well when they speak normally

Took my niece to see her first west end show. I surprised her with Wicked. What a good choice that was. She had an absolute spell bounding time
Pierce London Box Office customer
Fabulous show. Slightly weak story line but who cares! Loved it.
Gillian London Box Office customer
If it’s summer and warm, wear shorts and bring a hand held fan as the theatre isn’t airconditioned.
wills London Box Office customer
Must see show
Visually entertaining amazing voices from main leads
Seamus London Box Office customer
Irem London Box Office customer
Show is great but the theatre is a little warm and stuffy. You can see lots of people fanning away. We went in summer i.e. end July. So if you could bring a hand fan, it would provide some relief.
Keng Soon London Box Office customer
As a classical musician, i realize this show is really not about music, it’s more of a spectacle than a musical experience, the singing was very uneven, some of them are very flat with pitch which really drives me crazy, and the style of sing is more like screaming and shouting for dramatic effects. There is nothing subtle about this show. I have heard so many people say it’s a great show, I must say it was a big disappointment!
Yi London Box Office customer
Wow! Absolutely Fsntastic!
Tracy London Box Office customer
Third time to see this show but first time in London. Great especially the prop!
Doris London Box Office customer
everything was fantastic. The actors were especially good at singing! the story and songs were good too, entertaining, addicting, and fabulous! Wickedbis an awesome show.
JIN London Box Office customer
A world class act
The show itself is amazing. Truly amazing. The one problem that we had there, along with other people, is the lack of air conditioning in the theater. It was so hot at some point that we couldn't really enjoy the show.
Alon London Box Office customer
Very entertaining! Must see!
Nikki London Box Office customer
Best of the best
Kartika London Box Office customer
The show was wonderful but absolutely horrible in the theatre itself due to the weather!! Unbearablly hot...why has no air conditioning system been installed??
Ellen London Box Office customer

It is a must see for any age
Any age would enjoy ... very very entertaining!!
Sonya London Box Office customer
Don’t be late! I was alittle late and had to stand in the lobby watching from a small tv screen for 20minutes until we were taken to our seats.
Helen London Box Office customer
Wicked IMPROVES with age!
I have seen the original opening on Broadway as well as the original opening in London. I have also seen the show 4 times now and each time it has improved! The actors and technicians have created a show that never ceases to entertain. The cast all had beautiful voices and developed their characters with originality and delight! It's alway s a pleasure to visit London and attend theatrical events!
Paul London Box Office customer
Well acted and amazing singing voices. Great show you won’t be disappointed.
Joanne London Box Office customer
kerem London Box Office customer
Incredible, fascinating, to see it again and again!
María London Box Office customer
Beautifully executed, wildly entertaining
Took my eleven year-old during her first trip to London. She has been going to Broadway shows since she was five... Wicked has rocketed to the top of her “favorite” list! However, I would not recommend the show for children under the age of 10.
Abbi London Box Office customer
Whether it was the sound or pronunciation it was hard to make out some of the words at times.
Lou London Box Office customer
Sometimes when you've seen a show with the actors that are best known for it, you're afraid of being let down. Of the main actors in this version there was only one that was lacking, and he was still good, just not excellent. The story is unique and fun, the sentiments are heartfelt, and the message resounds long after you see it.
Carol London Box Office customer
Confusing story line, awesome performance and music
Evgenia London Box Office customer
I treated my wife too a show in London as she's never been, and i haven't been too London myself for 35 years, I'm not a lover of theatre, but i would highly recommend Wicked too anyone, the acting and singing was amazing.....
lee London Box Office customer
Harold London Box Office customer
None of the script was spoken or sung clearly. The wizard was the exception to this comment. The chorus was dreadful - not one word was clear. One of the principal actors thought that to emphasise a point, it was essential to screech.
Barbara London Box Office customer
Cherryll London Box Office customer
A wonderful show must see!
Shu Kuan London Box Office customer
The rest of the story

Glad I saw I once
Kimberley London Box Office customer
Dramatic and majestic, comedic and tragic, an enthralling expansion tank n a classic tale. A great experience for a night's entertainment.
David London Box Office customer
Wonderful story that makes you think!
Yangyang London Box Office customer
A Wonderfully Wicked Evening
This show is a must-see, and I have now seen it 6 times, in different cities in North America and UK. This presentation was my absolute favourite. The voices are tremendous, the acting is suburb. This director has some added touches that I have not seen in other shows, like the green bottle under the hat when Alphaba 'melts'. Anyone who sees this story will be inspired by the impact that labels have on people, and how people's personalities are impacted by those around us. If you ever wondered how someone 'so good' could become 'so bad' see this show! I love it!
RuthAnn London Box Office customer
Generally I loved the show.
Hamid London Box Office customer
All-time fave still makes me cry
Wanted to compare this to Broadway’s Wicked...it is just as wonderful!!
Ellen London Box Office customer
Rafael London Box Office customer
Magical! A must see show specially for witches & Wizard of Oz story enthusiasts!
I took my 8 year old daughter to see Wicked, she love Wizard of Oz and was curious about the untold story of the witches. The sound & music was great and the actors are superb! We were seated further at the back, I should have selected the ones closer to the stage :( Next time I will book a better seat
Melissa London Box Office customer

Spectacular on a scenographic level
MAURO London Box Office customer
storyline great and non-stop singing.
get there on time and get settled.
Catherine London Box Office customer
Wonderful, entertaining, colourful, musical
Absolutely amazing and definitely worth the money. We sat in the circle and the view was great! We would recommend watching the Wizard of Oz before watching the show though!
Marie London Box Office customer
Just as good as the New York show!
Timothy London Box Office customer
Great theatrical direction and acting/singing
Assem London Box Office customer
Unfortunately I could not connect with the music. Songs were not ‘singalong’ material and seemed to be more based upon American Style cheerleading stuff. I wanted to enjoy the show as I love Theatre but I could not relate to the story. The show wasnt for me.
David London Box Office customer
Fantastic! Great cast
Mark London Box Office customer
Loved the show. it was great. highly recimmend it
Peggy London Box Office customer
wonderful story, music and acting, you must see !!
captivating and energetic history, fantastic music and magnificent interpretations
Cristina London Box Office customer
Didn't enjoy this unfortunately.
Really looking forward to this but glad to get to the end unfortunately. Story line was poor and I felt it was a bit of a barbie story for kids in the first half. Music / singing was screechy at times though green witch had a great voice. Theatre and seats were good..Show was not for every one and not for me.
Janine London Box Office customer
Imaginative - alteration
Kimberly London Box Office customer
Very entertaining, for all audiences
Anne London Box Office customer

Wicked the musical hit, which tells the story of the wicked witch in the famous “The Wizard of Oz” has been attracting thousands of audiences to the West End for over 9 years. To use the word spectacle would not give justice to this production as it is pure musical theatre ecstasy for both eyes and ears, yet despite its great visuals and vocals there is something lacking in this world of Oz.Read more

This weekend was one of the pivotal awards weekends in the theatre calendar, with the stars of the West End hitting the red carpet to celebrate the best of theatre, dance and opera that London had to offer. The 39th Lawrence Olivier Awards took place on Sunday 12th April at the Royal Opera House and as ever there were some expected wins for the year’s most popular productions but also some surprises as well deserved dark horses crept up unawares.Read more

What is this feeling, so sudden and new? My excitement at seeing Wicked again, that’s what! Kerry Ellis returns to this record breaking show in a blaze of green glory.
In my mind, a show like Wicked needs no introduction; it’s hard to imagine walking through London Victoria without seeing the eye-catching green signs adorning the Apollo Victoria Theatre. After winning over 100 international awards and defining the careers of many musical theatre performers, I have to remind myself that Wicked has only been around for 9 years. But like any musical, it often goes through cast changes to keep the performances fresh. So I went along to watch this spectacle once again but now with a new leading lady playing the green witch Elphaba herself.Read more
