About the Show

Acclaimed as "a huge, bright, colourful production that’s full of wonder and joy" (Official London Theatre), the classic musical is one of the West End and Broadway’s most popular, spectacular, and unforgettable shows.

Based on the multimillion-copy best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines a beguiling backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum's beloved characters from 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', revealing the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely university friends on their journey to becoming 'Glinda The Good' and the 'Wicked Witch of the West'.

"One of the most successful musicals of all time."
