Oh dear. I don't like writing bad reviews, but goodness me this was lame. The cast were all very enthusiastic & the costumes & stage design were fabulous. But the plot was very tenuous... There was lots of screechy singing ...... There were no memorable songs - although my children seemed to know a few of them & I found... More

Generic nondescript music, instantly forgettable. Weak dancing (terrible arm placements and legwork). Uncharismatic actors. On the plus side, kids liked it. Go and see Charlie and chocolate factory instead.

I generally dislike musicals. But this one had some catchy songs that I couldn't help but bop my head to. Defying Gravity is now one of my favourite songs. A powerful voice is needed for it

We went to see Wicked this week on our honeymoon, i have never seen a London show and I am so glad we picked Wicked! Although i have nothing to compare it to i loved every second. It was so impressive, visually, it was just amazing. I had goosepimples whilst watching. It had everything it needed.

We visited to watch Wicked on 28th August and had a great evening. The theatre is so easy to get to via Underground on the Victoria line as the theatre is straight opposite the station. The theatre was good, all seats seem to have good viewing to the stage (we were near the back of the dress circle and could... More

The talent on stage was among the best I have ever seen. The talent went deep in the cast which is unusual

My family visited London in June 2014. Not only was Wicked a fantastic show (by far our favorite), but we got a fantastic deal. We stopped by earlier in the week to find out they offer same-day seats (held back--front row) for 30 pounds each. These are first come, first served tickets. We went on a Tuesday and I queued...

I love this musical. Storyline, music, dramatic effects, all brilliant. Ranks as my number one choice alongside Les Miserables. Now touring as well - so if you get a chance to see it, grab it!

Kelly Ellis was outstanding - fantastic voice that was strong and warm. The story was not the most obvious, but it worked. The costumes were stunning. A musical worth seeing / hearing!

Ok, a little bias as I am a huge fan of The Wizard of Oz, but this is the best musical on in London at the moment Charting the course of the protagonist Elphabab (sp) from university right through her path that leads her to become The Wicked Witch and beyond. I can guarantee that you won't watch The Wizard... More
