Wicked has extended its run in London’s West End until May 2020.
One of the world’s biggest musicals, Wicked has been running at the Apollo Victoria Theatre since 2006 and just celebrated its 13th birthday.
Now producers have announced that bookings have been extended into 2020, flying into a landmark 14th year at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre.
The magical tale reveals the ‘true untold story’ behind the Wizard Of Oz and just what happened before Dorothy dropped in. Featuring some of musical theatre’s most iconic songs, such as Defying Gravity, Wicked will send your spirits soaring to heights you’ll never forget.
Currently the ninth longest running show in West End history, Wicked is playing at the Apollo Victoria Theatre and is now booking through to 23 May 2020.
500,000 new tickets have been released for performances on Monday-Saturday at 7:30pm with Wednesday & Saturday matinees at 2:30pm.
Michael McCabe, Executive Producer of Wicked in the UK said: “It takes more than 100 people on-stage and behind the scenes to deliver each performance of Wicked and it is a testament to their talent and tireless dedication that we are able to continue delivering the show to such an exceptional and exacting standard.
“As we celebrate entering our 14th year, we acknowledge the debt of gratitude we owe to all of our various casts, musicians, creatives and production staff as well as to the many millions of theatregoers who have so passionately supported and championed Stephen Schwartz’s incredible musical since its London premiere in 2006.”
The current Wicked London cast is led by Nikki Bentley as Elphaba and Helen Woolf as Glinda.
They’re joined by Alistair Brammer as Fiyero, Kim Ismay as Madame Morrible, Idriss Kargbo as Boq (until 10 November) Andy Hockley as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Simeon Truby as Doctor Dillamond, and Carina Gillespie playing Nessarose (Natasha Ferguson will be maternity cover for Nessarose.)
