Madhushree

On 27 September 2023, Wicked celebrated its 17th anniversary at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. Having charmed nearly 12 million theatregoers with over 6512 performances by 22 September 2023, Wicked has etched its name as one of the longest-running and beloved productions in the West End. The production has decided to extend its run until 15 December 2024, with seven additional shows scheduled for the upcoming months to commemorate this milestone. If you still haven't watched Wicked, here are four compelling reasons you cannot miss the opportunity to experience it at Apollo Victoria Theatre.

1. Revisit the world of Oz

Embark on a journey to the land of Oz to meet Glinda and Elphaba. This musical offers fresh perspectives on the fates of the two witches, how their friendship soured and why they ultimately became rivals. 

2. The critical acclaim

With over 100 global awards and accolades, Wicked is a testament to theatrical excellence. Wicked has won the hearts of audiences and critics alike for its innovative storytelling, stunning visuals, and powerful performances. 

3. Mesmerizing music

With a career of over five decades, Stephen Schwartz creates a soundtrack that elevates the story. From the haunting 'Defying Gravity' to the uplifting 'Popular,' the musical numbers are a part of Wicked's magic that will linger in your heart even after the final curtain falls.

4. The talented cast

The success of Wicked is not only due to its storyline and music but also to the exceptional talent gracing the stage. Alexia Khadime, Lucy St Louis, Ryan Ried, Mark Curry and many more are part of the stellar cast that breathes life into the characters. 

With additional shows added to the schedule, now is the perfect time to immerse yourself in the magic, mystery, and music of Wicked—a theatrical journey that promises to leave you spellbound. View the Apollo Victoria Theatre seating plan for seat recommendations!
