The best show I've ever seen. I've watched it twice now, once with average seats and the second with very good seats and both times it was amazing. Having seen it on two seperate occasions, I've seen the regular actress who plays Elphaba and the stand in and they are both brilliant, I can't express enough how amazing this show is. It really is a must see!

Unbelievably breathtaking! I waited outside afterwards because I felt it was my duty to tell all the actors I could, how deeply I was moved by there performance! It still gives me chills!!

The scoring system doesn't go high enough. Absorbing, from start to finish, excellent night out, terrific scenery , wish I could congratulate everyone in person, from actors to stage hands.if this does go further, please pass on good wishes to them.

As a spectacle it was as good as any, but let down hugely by the sound / accoustics system. It was fine when vocals were quiet or mid volume, but when cast joined in or songs reached a peak the sound was very harsh and piercing - couldn't make out a word when this happened. Unfortunately for the singers this nullified their undoubted talent. I've been to many west end shows and this was by far the worst for acoustics. By all means go to see to Wicked and enjoy the spectacle but don't expect to hear most of the lyrics. It's a pity - we were looking forward to it and it became rather a disappointment.

Boring is an understatement. The audience around me where falling asleep or looking at their mobiles. The songs where nondescript and uninspiring. In respect of the cast we endured the first half before walking out during the interval. I've seen dozens of shows, Wicked is by far the worst I've seen. Please don't GO

Past 26th of March I went to the musical WICKED in London with my class. The musical was real wicked. Before I visited the musical I needed to make one assigment . And I watched the film ‘The Wizard of Oz’. So I really did know a lot about the musical. And when I saw the musical I was so surprised of the things that is saw. It was so amazing ! Everything was so beautiful. But later I will tell more about that. First is wanted to say where the musical is about. WICKED is the untold story of the Witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy came in to the Land of Oz, two other girls meted each other in the Land of Oz. One of the girls (Elphaba played by Willemijn Verkaik) is born with a green skin she is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other girl (Glinda played by Savannah Stevenson) is a beautiful girl , ambitious and very popular. WICKED tells the story of how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. The Wicked witch of the West isn’t wicked of al she wanted to help other people but people misunderstand her a lot. And she wasn’t even born with it because she was green she was different. And people thought that she was weird and not normal. But now my expression of the show. Everything was perfect. The actors did a really good job. Their way of performing I really love. I was sitting high in the theatre so didn’t see their make-up so I can’t judge that. But I cloud see how their hair was styled and I didn’t like their hair styles it was so normal and for a fantasy musical I express more about that. I was thinking that they had very fantasy hair styles. But that didn’t make the musical worse. Because their costumes where pretty awesome. Boys were wearing skirts. And the girls where wearing beautyful ball gowns at that moment I was so surprised. I loved the bubble dress of Glinda the most of all. It was a fairy tail moment it was so beautiful. ( on the left you see the dress). The other actors did also a amazing job during the musical. Because I was sitting so high I was thinking that the sound wasn’t so loud but in the hole theatre the sound was every where even. And the lights where shut off and changed from colour on the good moments. And the reaction of the audience ? That was the same reaction that I had when I was watching the musical.

My conclusion; It is a hard warming musical with beautiful songs , special effects and a lot more. This is my favourite musical and I can recommend this musical to every one.

I came to the matinee performance on 19th February. I was amazed by the performance it was truly magical, the effects were marvellous and I have been telling everyone they should see it. I definitely will be back to see it again ! The two lead females have brilliant voices and terrific ranges in there singing. Well done to everyone.
