Wicked re-imagines the Land of Oz, creating a parallel universe to the familiar story of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' - telling the incredible story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two young women. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good, and The Wicked Witch of the West. The West End and Broadway musical sensation, is already the 11th longest running show in London theatre history. Winner of over 100 major awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning ‘Best West End Show’ on three separate occasions), the iconic musical has already been seen by over 11 million people in London alone and played almost 6500 performances.

We’ve all heard Dorothy’s side of the story, but what about the Wicked Witch of the West? This time, it’s Elphaba’s turn to try defying gravity in the award-winning, record-breaking, showstopping Wicked: The Musical.
Based on Gregory Maguire’s acclaimed 1995 novel, Wicked follows the unlikely friendship between Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Galinda (Glinda, the Good Witch). The story begins long before the famous arrival of Dorothy when Elphaba and Glinda meet at university. As the two polar-opposite roommates bond despite their differences, the magical forces of Oz conspire around them to ensure that each girl finally meets her destiny.
Stephen Schwartz’s original music and lyrics — featuring smash hits like Defying Gravity, Popular, For Good, and The Wizard and I — won the Grammy for Best Musical Show Album in 2005. Internationally, the musical has won three Tony awards and seven Drama Desk awards, as well as being named the “Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly.
