If you think you know the Wicked Witch of the West, think again...

When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch, we only ever heard one side of the story. Gregory Maguire's acclaimed 1995 novel, "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West", re-imagined the Land of Oz, creating a parallel universe to the familiar story written by L. Frank Baum and first published as "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" in 1900.

Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba.

Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda's unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba's determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

The spectacular, multi award-winning stage musical, with music and lyrics by Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman, has become "the biggest thing in musicals since The Phantom of the Opera opened" (The Times).

"A major hit with audiences and critics alike (BBC News), Wicked has won over 90 international awards including the Olivier Award for Most Popular Show, the Evening Standard Theatre Award for Best Night Out and the Whatsonstage.com Award for Best West End Show and Best New Musical.

The London Evening Standard raved: "A wicked and wonderful vision of Oz. A remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises and sensations, Wicked works like a dream."
