Wicked Theatre Breaks

You’re more likely to follow the M1 motorway than the Yellow Brick Road en route to your London theatre break, but if you choose to see Wicked, you’ll end up in the magical Land of Oz anyway.

L. Frank Baum’s Oz books and their classic movie adaptation The Wizard Of Oz inspired Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, on which this uplifting musical spectacular is based.

The story of how sorcery-school pals Elphaba and Glinda became the Wicked Witch Of The West and Glinda the Good has won over 90 international awards, and features awesome sets and costumes as well as a touching story and stunning tunes including Defying Gravity.

After more than ten years on the West End stage, Wicked still plays to packed houses throughout the week, and the atmosphere in the Apollo Victoria Theatre is electrifying.

Is It For Me?

If you’re planning a family visit, bear in mind that Wicked is especially popular with teenage girls. It’s got fabulous glamour and jaw-dropping magic to spare, but at its heart is a relatable story about friendship and individuality that grounds it in truthfulness and really makes it work.

That said, there’s plenty there for older audiences too. Not only are there abundant sly references to the world of Oz you remember from your childhood movie experiences, the technical and musical accomplishments of the show are genuinely dazzling.

Wicked is rock-solid entertainment that will send you out of the theatre walking on air and braced for further adventures of your own in the magical land of London.
