One of the world’s biggest musicals, Wicked has been running at the Apollo Victoria Theatre since 2006.

As it celebrates it 17th birthday in the capital, the production is now booking through to 15 December 2024 with 500,000 new tickets released.

Wicked unveils the enchanting saga that unveils the ‘hidden narrative’ preceding the arrival of Dorothy in the Wizard Of Oz. Brimming with timeless musical treasures, including the unforgettable Defying Gravity, this extraordinary production will elevate your emotions to heights that will linger in your memory forever.

Wicked UK’s executive producer Michael McCabe: “As we celebrate this remarkable milestone, we would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our debt of gratitude to our extraordinary audiences and the exceptional group of over 100 individuals onstage and backstage at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, who, together with all the management, marketing, PR, Box Office and venue staff, have worked so passionately and tirelessly to maintain Wicked over the past seventeen years.”

The current Wicked London cast, to 12 March 2024, is led by Alexia Khadime as Elphaba and Lucy St. Louis as Glinda. They’re joined by Ryan Reid (Fiyero), Sophie-Louise Dann (Madame Morrible), Mark Curry (The Wizard), Caitlin Anderson (Nessarose), Joe Thompson-Oubari (Boq) and Simeon Truby (Doctor Dillamond).

Alongside the ongoing West End run, Wicked will head out on a new UK tour later this year, opening at the Edinburgh Playhouse in December before heading to Bristol, Birmingham, Bradford, Southampton, Liverpool and more throughout 2024 and into 2025.

Plus, a brand new movie adaptation is on its way with Cynthia Erivo and Ariana Grande.
