Wicked is the enchanting musical by Winnie Holzman and Stephen Schwartz which has been capturing the hearts of audiences around the world. A magical retelling of the land of Oz, Wicked tells the story of The Wizard of Oz as you have never heard it before. Since opening on Broadway in 2003, the musical has travelled around the world and is celebrating an impressive 10 years on the West End this year.

Following Elphaba, an aspiring young witch who is unfortunately very green, Wicked is the ultimate tale of friendship, love and acceptance. Inspired by Gregory Maguire's 1995 novel of the same name, the musical follows Elphaba as she begins school and meets fellow aspiring witch Galinda. Struggling to fit in because of her peculiar appearance, Elphaba's powers soon begin to spiral out of control. As Elphaba and Galinda join together, they soon begin to learn that everything in the land of Oz may not be as it seems. When the animals begin to lose their voice, Elphaba decides that she must take action.

A Tony, Olivier and Grammy Award-winning musical, Wicked has featured countless stars in the lead roles, including Kerry Ellis, Idina Menzel, Rachel Tucker, Louise Dearman, Emma Hatton and Willemijn Verkaik amongst many others. Wicked's current cast includes Willemijn Verkaik as Elphaba, Suzie Mathers as Glinda, Oliver Savile as Fiyero, Anita Dobson as Madame Morrible, Mark Curry as the Wizard, Katie Rowley Jones as Nessarose, Idriss Kargbo as Boq and Martin Ball as Doctor Dillamond. Willemijn Verkaik returns in January 2017 as Elphaba.

Featuring a score that is celebrated around the world, Wicked includes songs such as "The Wizard and I", "Popular", "No Good Deed" and the show-stopping "Defying Gravity" amongst many others. Directed by Joe Mantello, Wicked is staged by Wayne Cilento, with design by Eugene Lee and Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kenneth Posner and sound design by Tony Meola. Wicked plays at London's Apollo Victoria Theatre and shows no signs of flying away any time soon!
