Absolutly fantastic, I really was not looking forward to seeing the show, but was blown away by the cast, the sets, the songs highly recommended.
What a show! totally blown away by the amazing cast and score, thank you.
Was worried that this show wouldn't live up to the hype. Couldn't have been more wrong. Was absolutely blown away by the sheer volume of the production which managed to be spectacular without taking away from the huge talent of the actors and actresses. If you do anything in your life head to the Victoria Apollo and see the best musical of the century!
I have seen many musicals but nothing has moved and excited me as much as 'Wicked'. I have seen it twice and cannot wait to see it again!
Outstanding! It was my first time ever seeing a musical and I can't get over Elphaba's voice! She was absolutely breathtaking! All I want to do now is go back and see it another 1000000 times! Its definitely a MUST SEE! Elphaba and Glinda we're incredible! Rachel(Elphaba) is my idol!
Have you ever wondered how the Wicked Witch of the West got her name and what was going on in the “Merry Old Land of Oz” before Dorothy and her little dog showed up? Wicked the Musical is a show which flips L.Frank Baum’s classic story on its head. This fairytale with real moral issues has broken box office records around the world.
Hailed as the prequel to The Wizard of Oz and based on Gregory Maguire’s novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West” the show has been adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman, her book having both wit and warmth, with songs by Stephen Schwartz.
Wicked-The Musical tells the story of an unlikely friendship between two sorcery students at Shiz University. Glinda is blond and beautiful, spoilt and shallow and as a result is the most popular girl in school. Elphaba is the friendless daughter of the Governor of Munchkin land and is immediately judged and outcast for being different; she has green skin. As initial loathing shifts to a deep bond the girls journey to Oz to meet the infamous Wizard but the truths that they discover force them to make choices the results of which will forge their futures. Throw in opposing personalities and view points and a love interest rivalry in the form of the dashing Fiyero and you have a situation that will test even the strongest friendship. Told from the perspective of the witches, the show depicts the story of how one came to be known as good and the other as “Wicked”.
Wicked has many of the elements of magical musical theatre; an astounding set by Eugene Lee, superb imaginative costumes by Susan Hilferty and an extremely talented cast. Universal are among the vast list of producers credited so there is little wonder that it is a musical extravaganza with slick ensemble dance routines, stunning production values and spectacular visual affects which at times “defy gravity”. There are some truly dazzling vocal performances from the two leads and the ensemble singing is at times so powerful it comes at you like a wall of sound.
There is a lot of schmaltz and it doesn’t offer a vast amount in the way of thought provoking revelations but it is an imaginative concept which fizzes with pizzazz. Packed with spectacle and memorable characters Wicked is good old fashioned entertainment which continues to cast a spell over its audiences.
Fantastic, best musical I have EVER seen. Would recommend it for all ages hilarious touching and generally magnificent!!!!
The music was fantastic. I could not wait to buy the soundtrack on CD. I am booking to see it again. Even my dad who hates musicals wants to go again! If you have not seen it go before it finishes.
