Dianne Pilkington stole the show every night. She is fabulous. I wonder how anyone could be better. Kerry Ellis has an amazing voice. She was always met with great applause when she first appears on stage. One night the understudy appeared instead to silence from the audience. But everyone seemed to warm up to her by the middle of the first act onward. In fact, all the actors were great in all the shows that I saw that week. Best musical ever!

i saw this yesterday at the Apollo Victoria theatre, after watching many versions of the Broadway cast on youtube (original cast). However in this version, Alexia (plays Elphaba) is amazing, literally! This show is 100x better than the Broadway one. Phenomenal! THe music is breathtaking, especially the voices of the cast. Alexia has definitely got a bright future ahead of her. I recommend this show to everyone. It has different genres of music for everyone's taste. THe story line is superb, it is romantic, funny, emotional, blood bumping, sometimes even scary! Its an all singing, dancing, and acting show. It even brings up issues in todays world, which makes it educational, and i'm sure you'll agree with me, heart warming. I went to the west end with great expectations, and walked away astounded. Everyone watch WICKED it is .... Wicked! The most amazing experience ive ever had, and probably, ever will have!

I have been to see this show twice now and it just keeps getting better. i love it im thinking of going again very soon, the story, the cast, the songs, all fantastic, the times i saw it Kerry Ellis played Elphaba and she just took my breath away her voice was amazing, i would have to say that the best song for me has to be Defying Gravity the moment Elphaba rises up gives me goose bumps every time. i recomend going to see this show. if you are going to see one west end show see Wicked.

My lovely friend bought me and my husband tickets for our 1st Wedding Anniversary, and to be honest I wasnt sure what to expect. From the very 1st second, I was hooked! Glinda, was hilarious, and even had my husband laughing. But the show was stolen by Ashley Grey, the Understudy! Her performance was breathtaking and the hairs literally stood up on the back of my neck! I've never heard a voice like it!!! She was tremendous! I cant wait for another excuse to go and see it again!!!! Pure Entertainment, and I walked away from the theatre feeling euphoric! That may sound a bit O.T.T but its true!!! I've bought the soundtrack, and listen to it everyday!!!! Truely the best Musical I have ever seen!!!

As a musical fan I was unsure about an adapted concept. I loved it! Yes took me a while to get into, the first song is ok...next few are really unmotivating but once the musical get in the talented cast make up for the loss of 20 mins.....Trust me miss this and you'll regret it! This isn't going any where!!!

I thought this show was brilliant, the witch had the most beautiful voice, the costumes were briiliant. It was very funny, especially Glinda. I would go back today if I could.

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.
