1.5 star rating Bob Donnelly from Darwin Australia


Have just returned from the "Wicked" matinee of 7 January 2009. Iwas certainly impressed by the two leading ladies and the story was interesting & quirky; BUT, & I know this is the coldest London winter for some time, but the front stalls were an ice pit. Most patrons, including myself had to keep their coats,hats & gloves on throughout. It certainly affected my ability to enjoy the performance as, I am sure, it did for others. Management did not even aqpologise or explain the reason for this state of affairs!! Some PR skills needed?

June 2009, I think the show was good but unfortunately feel I only managed to see half of it. I am NOT a short person but I was sitting in F27 and had a man of average height sitting in front of me. The result; I was unable to see centre stage at all and had to weave from side to side to follow the performance. I felt I had to apologise to the lady sitting behind me who said she was following me as she couldn't see either! Very, very poor value for the high price tickets. It really spoiled the show for me and therefore could not recommend it to anyone. If the show moves theatre would go and see it again.

I was deeply disappointed with this show. It didn't live up to the hype at all. Thank God I received discounted tickets as I would have been very very upset to have paid full price for this feeble & lacklustre show. Even my 11 year old daughter was unimpressed. Save your money & go to see Hirspary or Legally Blonde instead whcih are both fantastic.

My husband and I go to the theatre often,went to see wicked Tuesday evening Nov 2013 what a load of rubbish paid £138.00 for two tickets wish I'd spent it on something else. Slow boring and silly story. Kids might like it. wouldn't recommend it for good night out although The pub down the road The Albert serves lovely food saved our night out.

Walked out half time could not understand what they were singing. It’s just so bad. It also try’s to be this story that really is left of centre. I am a theatre goer and this was disappointing . Had great seats.

None of the songs are catchy . Lead singer too old to be the romantic interest of the lead make character - inconsistency with plot. Stereo sound on the poor side. Glad I only paid 20 pounds . Surprised this drivel stands there for 30 years !

1.0 star rating Bridie O'Connell from London, England


I must have watched the dress rehearsal! Have the poor reviews been filtered out! It was the worst West End show I've seen. I was so underwhelmed by everything that I was ready to leave by the interval. It was boring and more like a pantomime and some of the acting like a high school performance. A huge disappointment for my daughter's 21st weekend away. If it was possible I'd ask for my money back!

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.
