Wicked has announced it will reopen in London’s West End in September 2021.
One of the world’s biggest musicals, Wicked has been running at the Apollo Victoria Theatre since 2006 and will soon celebrate its 15th birthday with tickets on sale now.
Following a forced closure due to the pandemic, producers have announced performances will resume in the West end on 15 September 2021.
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 will be booking through to May 2022.
Michael McCabe, executive producer (UK) of Wicked said today: “Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman’s wondrous musical version of Gregory Maguire’s darkly brilliant fable is an allegory for, and of, our times.
“After the challenging year faced by everyone in our company, we are grateful to them for their resilience and patience and delighted that we can at last get back to telling this extraordinary story again. We look forward to audiences returning to Oz and to creating more unforgettable memories for everyone.”
Casting for the reopening is to be confirmed.
Prior to lockdown, the Wicked London cast was led by Laura Pick as Elphaba and Helen Woolf as Glinda.
They’re joined by Alistair Brammer as Fiyero, Kim Ismay as Madame Morrible, Nicholas McLean as Boq, Andy Hockley as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Simeon Truby as Doctor Dillamond, and Carina Gillespie playing Nessarose.
