WICKED, the West End and Broadway musical sensation that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, will tonight fly into its landmark 14th year at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre.
The classic musical is already the 9th longest running musical in West End history and the 5th longest running musical currently playing in the West End. Winner of over 100 major international awards, including three Tony Awards on Broadway and two Olivier Awards and ten theatregoer-voted WhatsOnStage Awards (including three for ‘Best West End Show’) in the UK.
