Wicked, the West End and Broadway musical sensation, is already the 9th longest-running musical in London theatre history. Winner of over 100 major awards, including three Tony Awards, two Olivier Awards and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (winning ‘Best West End Show’ on three separate occasions), the classic musical has recently welcomed its 10 millionth visitor. Wicked the musical is now running at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London and the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway.
Wicked imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
Wicked the musical has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, book by Winnie Holtzman, direction by Joe Mantello, musical staffing by Wayne Cilento, scenic design by Eugene Lee, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Tony Meola, projection design by Elaine J McCarthy, hair and wig design by Tom Watson, and make up design by Joe Dulude II.
