Acclaimed as "a thrilling theatrical experience with brains, heart and courage" (Metro) and "one of the most popular West End musicals ever" (Evening Standard), Wicked is already the 15th longest running show in West End theatre history and has now been seen by almost 9 million people in London alone. Around the world, "the gravity-defying Wizard of Oz prequel" (Time Out London) has won over 100 major awards, including ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning 'Best West End Show' on three occasions) and two Olivier Audience Awards in the UK.

WICKED is also presently on a year-long tour of the UK & Ireland and is currently playing a sold-out engagement at the Birmingham Hippodrome until 29 April 2018. The tour will subsequently visit Edinburgh, Leeds, Dublin, Sunderland, Southampton, Cardiff and, for Christmas 2018/19, a final return to the Palace Theatre in Manchester (where the acclaimed tour originally premiered in September 2013 and will conclude on 5 January 2019).

Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagines the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

WICKED currently stars Alice Fearn (Elphaba), Sophie Evans (Glinda), Bradley Jaden (Fiyero), Melanie La Barrie (Madame Morrible), Andy Hockley (The Wizard), Martin Ball (Doctor Dillamond), Sarah McNicholas (Nessarose), Jack Lansbury (Boq), Laura Pick (Standby for Elphaba) and Carina Gillespie & Maria Coyne* (Standby for Glinda).
