4.5 star rating Rory from London,


I went with my girlfriend two weeks ago and it was brilliant! The staging was exceptional... The singing top notch... All with a fun and interesting story interwoven with The Wizard of Oz. Loved it. A must see London West End show!

4.0 star rating Hayley from Cambridge, UK


Alexia Khadime, Elphaba, has an amazing voice! She gave me goose pimples with every note she sang. Defying Gravity was a masterpiece!! She deserves an award fo her voice, outstanding!! made it for me.

4.0 star rating James Palmer from Chatteris, England


We went as a family to see this for a 50th birthday and what a great show to see, lighting, permormance was wexcellent. The only let down, and we were not the only ones to say it, was down to the Apollo Theatre itself. About 10-15 minutes into the performance about 20 people were aloud to come in and sit down interupting a brilliant performance and throughout the performance ushers and members of the audiance were up and down the isles disrupting a great show, this is the only theatre i have known this to happen and felt let down as it was very distracting. A great show just a shame about the venue.

The marketing of the souvenir was not professional as in Broadway theatre, although I was the first n the queue n the boutique @ theatre after the end of the show (5th January) the lady who called HOLLY was selling to every one except us. She must have a training course in dealing with customers as the case in Broadway.

We left the theatre about an hour ago and I have been aching to write this review every minute since. Bravo to Laura Harrison who is the "stand in" for the usual Elphaba. Stand in? This woman galvanised the audience with her perfect voice and powerful acting. The production values (especially the fascinating and gorgeous sets) were excellent and the cast as a whole was very good. But Laura Harrison was funny, heartbreaking and fabulous.

3.5 star rating Morgan from london


expect to see a show like a disney production (maybe a little bit better). Anyway, wicked is one of the best show in the west end and kerry ellis is amazing singing defying gravity. the staging is just incredible!

3.5 star rating Sally Clare from UK


We saw Wicked on 29th December 2008 and whilst we did enjoy the show, the theatre conditions left a lot to be desired. We were sitting the circle and were freezing throughout the whole performance which unfortunately distracted our full attention from the show. Other people around us complained to the manager during the interval and were told that the heating was on and the temperature was fine!! When we tried to speak to the manager at the end of the performance he couldn't be found. We went back the next day and eventually spoke to the deputy manager who hadn't been on duty the night before but promised to investigate and come back to us - we are still waiting!!!

What we thought

MESMERISING Breathtaking delightful

Wicked provides the perfect escape from reality

Judging from the standing ovation given at the end of the show and the throngs of emerald fans disappearing daily through those emerald doors, Wicked's spell shows no sign of abating.
