Laura Pick said: “I’m thrilled to be leading the UK & Ireland tour cast of Wicked and to be given the opportunity to continue my journey in the unique and extraordinary role of Elphaba, which first began for me in the West End in 2017.

“Wicked has been a life and career-changing show for me and I am proud to be part of the cast taking this incredible musical back to theatres across the UK and Ireland.”

The show continues to play in the West End, where it opened in 2006, and on Broadway, where it will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year.

The magical tale of Wicked reveals the ‘true untold story’ behind the Wizard Of Oz and just what happened before Dorothy dropped in. Featuring some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs, such as Defying Gravity, Wicked will send your spirits soaring to heights you’ll never forget.

Alongside the tour, West End and Broadway runs, a long-awaited film adaptation is also in the works.
