If you loved The Wizard of Oz then you will love Wicked -- it's the untold story of what happened to the good and evil witches. (In fact, if you haven't seen The Wizard of Oz before then we definitely recommend watching it before you go -- so you can pick up on all the plot points and inside jokes.)

Glinda is a popular kid at Shiz University, whilst Elphaba is totally misunderstood (being green probably doesn't help), but they quickly strike up a friendship and enjoy lots of adventures.

But fate awaits... in the shape of Dorothy on the Yellow Brick Road -- where they will fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

As well as the ingenious plot, the show is filled with plenty of show-stopping songs and exciting technical wizardry. You'll see flying monkeys, levitating broomsticks, a smoke-breathing dragon, memorable sets, effects, and dazzling costumes.

Evening Standard – "One of the most popular West End musicals ever" Daily Mail – "The perfect choice for a spellbinding night out" Time Out – "The gravity-defying 'Wizard Of Oz' prequel" Guardian – "Packed with wit, storming songs and beautiful costumes" Daily Telegraph – "Packed with spectacular coups de theatre and magical effects"

 

glenking – “I thought this was going to more like the Wizard of Oz, but the other side of the story from the bad witches perspective, but its not really that at all and its only towards the end that they start doing things that you recognise from the Wizard of Oz. The sets are pretty good, a lot of the theatre is all dark and green and its got quite a good atmosphere in that place, but unfortunately the songs are a load of rubbish. The story was good, the acting was good, and we had a good time, but they just dont write songs like they used to anymore. They were just really bland tunes and i cant remember a single one of them, not even now after sitting here thinking about it. But dont let that put you off, because we still had a great night and i would certainly recommend it.”
